AT&T Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus: First Hands-on!

by Dieter Bohn Tue, 23 Mar 2010 1:16 pm EDT

We just snagged our first real hands-on time with the AT&T Palm Pre Plus and AT&T Palm Pixi Plus. They're exactly what you've come to know and love, but in a US-friendly 3G flavor. Both were fairly snappy and interestingly at least one Pixi Plus had some 3D Games on-board (but not quite working yet). The devices are definitely running something other than webOS 1.4 - instead running a version codenamed Arak.  

AT&T Telenav is on-board and we're told it will likely be a $9.99 / month add-on. More interesting is AT&T's YP Mobile (Yellow Pages Mobile) app. It's a worthy competitor to the not-quite-modern-anymore Google Maps. It uses Bing maps and cleverly integrates into lots of different pieces of webOS - you can add places to your calendar straight from the app, add places to your contacts, and generally get your local search and directions done.

The AT&T-exclusive blue-back option for the Pixi is also on display, for you Big Blue loyalists.

Sadly, we still don't have a firm ETA on when these will land - it's "coming months." Price, as we said before, will be $149.99 for the Pre Plus and $49.99 for the Pixi Plus, both after $100 mail-in rebate.
