So a couple of new friends came over to visit me today… Just in time for the press release that officially announces their arrival on Monday to the Verizon Network..

Verizon Wireless, the company with the largest and most reliable wireless voice and 3G data network, announced today that Palm® Pre™ Plus and Palm Pixi™ Plus will be on store shelves and ready for purchase on Jan. 25.  Palm Pre Plus will cost $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate, and Palm Pixi Plus will cost $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate, each with a new two-year customer agreement.  Buy a Palm Pre Plus or a Palm Pixi Plus and get a Palm Pixi Plus free after a mail-in rebate through Feb. 14.

So read on for the rest of the PR and some more pics of my little friends…

Just a few random shots for you:


Both Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus come travel-ready with a built-in 3G Mobile Hotspot – a Wi-Fi hotspot that can be shared among five Wi-Fi-capable devices.  The 3G Mobile Hotspot is the perfect family vacation companion, and at $40 for 5 GB and 5 cents per megabyte overage, it provides an allowance big enough for sharing with the entire family for downloading games, Internet access and more.

Paired with Verizon Wireless’ new Nationwide Talk or Nationwide Talk & Text plans and a $29.99 monthly data plan, Palm Pre Plus is the perfect tool for the busy family manager, while Palm Pixi Plus is the perfect complement to a youngster as part of a Family SharePlan®. Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plans begin at $39.99 monthly access and Nationwide Talk & Text Plans begin at $59.99 monthly access.  Nationwide Unlimited Talk Plans and Nationwide Unlimited Talk & Text Plans are available at $69.99 and $89.99 monthly access, respectively. Nationwide Unlimited Talk Family SharePlans start at $119.99 monthly access for the first two lines, while the Nationwide Unlimited Talk & Text Family SharePlans are $149.99 monthly access for the first two lines of service.

In addition, Palm Pixi Plus customers have more options for personalizing their phones with the new color Pixi Touchstone™ Back Covers.  The covers will be available in pink, blue, green, orange and black for only $29.99 each at and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores.

Customers will receive the handset rebates in the form of a debit card; upon receipt, customers may use the card as cash anywhere debit cards are accepted.

  1. Yeah the keyboards do feel small.. played with it a little bit tonight, needed charged of course, but I changed the background and stuck my ring tone on it… was a bit frustrated with it at first, maybe I should read the manual huh?!

  2. Can I be friends with your friends? I cannot wait to see your video unboxing and review! I looked at the Pre, but honestly, the keyboard is so small. I am spoiled rotten with my Tilt 2 keyboard I guess.

  3. Are you going to drill into webOS any or is it more of a device review? A vid just on webOS would be pretty cool for those of us who have not plasyed with it yet…

  4. It’ll be separate reviews I think.. fun carrying two phones with me.. I just forward all calls from my ATT phone so I don’t have to carry three phones…. or I may give two weeks for one phone and two weeks for the other and do it that way.. as far as webOS, not sure, I’ll do some sort of video though for the interface of course..

  5. […] MobilityDigest: This week we were treated to some nice Windows Mobile software with the release of I Left My Phone At Home, OpenMarket (for freeware apps), Pocket Plasma and an update of MyMobiler. At the same time we had a chance to look at the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pre Pixi for Verizon. […]
