AT&T confirmed to add latest Palms

Written by David Stellmack

Pre Plus & Pixi Plus to arrive soon

Our sources have now confirmed what we spilled to you previously: AT&T will add both the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus from Palm. While we can’t tell you exactly when, what we can tell you is that these models will join the AT&T smartphone offerings in the coming months. AT&T has yet to confirm an official launch date yet, but we hear whispers that we should expect it to arrive in stores before June.

What we do know is that the Pre Plus will come with 16GB of storage, where as the Pixi Plus will only come with 8GB of storage. Besides this difference from the recent Verizon offering, it will offer UMTS rather than CDMA support. It will also support AT&T’s Synergy Address Book sync service.

The news is good for Palm, as we told you about yesterday.  Palm needs to move inventory and they need carriers to offer the product in order to sell the units. While we have known from our sources that AT&T was going to add the Palm offerings for some time, it has been a mystery why it took AT&T so long to add these new models to the AT&T lineup.

While it is better late than never, the smartphone landscape has changed and there are far more new devices from which to choose since the release of the Pre. We just have to wonder if AT&T’s new additions will lead to strong sales numbers, which are obviously what Palm needs right now.
