Palm Pre Plus touches down on AT&T's lineup starting on May 16 for $149.99

Palm Pre Plus touches down on AT&T's lineup starting on May 16 for $149.99
The day is finally set in stone as AT&T's Facebook page let out the details surrounding the long waited Palm Pre Plus. AT&T customers who've been brimming with envy for those Sprint and Verizon customers who've been getting a taste of the multi-tasking friendly webOS platform are getting their chance shortly to experience all of the goodness accompanying it. The Palm Pre Plus will make its landing starting on May 16th with a somewhat slightly bloated price tag of $149.99 on contract. Although it falls right in line with the current price of Sprint's Palm Pre, it pales in comparison to the aggressive stance Verizon is taking with their version – luckily though, AT&T is including a free Touchstone charger with the purchase for a limited time only. However, there was no information regarding any additional pricing on its Mobile Hotspot feature which Verizon is happily providing for free for its Palm webOS customers.

I love my palm pre's web os but honestly the phone sucks and breaks like no tomorrow....the apps are such wanna-be apps its not even funny I look at android apps and iphone apps...the pre cant even compare. Sad outcome for the phone and I know that sprint and verizon can barely give the phone away. I dont see it being any more successful on at&t

HP bought Palm and using WebOS in HP slate and smartphones was wrong and unpopular with a few thousands apps. HP should using Android OS on slate and smartphones are popular and 30,000 apps and people loving it. I will not buy Palm or WebOS smartphone.

Whoops, another SMARTPHONE on AT&T's network that will just lead to the inevitable customer's choice of purchasing an IPHONE.
