AT&T Gains Pre Plus And Pixi Plus: Most Smartphones OSes Of Any U.S. Carrier

Wow. There had been rumors that webOS would be coming to AT&T, but just a few weeks after the carrier grabbed their first Android phone (Motorola's Backflip), Palm has announced that the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will soon be on sale at AT&T. That leaves just T-Mobile USA out in America when looking at operators with webOS, but since AT&T and T-Mobile both use GSM technology, we would guess that T-Mobile will be getting this duo as well soon.

Now, AT&T really does have the widest range of smartphone options, primarily because they're the only carrier with iPhone OS as well. AT&T is quick to point out that their Pre Plus and Pixi Plus  will be the "only Palm webOS devices in the U.S. to support simultaneous voice and data while running multiple applications at once." It's also notable that both of these phones will feature Wi-Fi (even the Pixi Plus), and they'll be able to get free AT&T Wi-Fi access at all U.S. hotspots that are a part of their network.

As for pricing, the Pre Plus will be $149.99 and the Pixi Plus will be $49.99, both after rebates and on a 2-year contract.
