YPMobile on the AT&T Palm Pre Plus: Hands-On

by Dieter Bohn Wed, 24 Mar 2010 9:27 pm EDT

As you've no-doubt surmised by now, there isn't a lot of daylight between the Palm Pre Plus on Verizon and the Palm Pre Plus on AT&T; Verizon gets mobile hotspot while AT&T gets a radio that has a better chance of actually working outside the United States. 

One piece of new software that is getting on board with AT&T is YPMobile, which is their Yellow Pages app. It's a straightforward local-search app, but it does allow you to add 'locations' to your calendar and contacts directly. It also uses Bing maps as a base, to those of you who are trying to keep Google from reading your mind may prefer that.

UPDATE: As Cinnabarcorp in the comments has so aptly pointed out, YPMobile is nothing new. In fact, it's been in the App Catalog since December. So yeah, we feel kind of silly right now (and confused that Palm and AT&T are touting this as if it's something new), but we're also pretty jazzed that we can download it right now.
