Palm Pre Plus (AT&T) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
24 May 2010
  • Summary: The Palm Pre Plus is a very capable phone, but it's stymied by short battery life and slow webpage load times over AT&T's network. While it's available for as little asa penny with a two-year contract through Amazon.com, we prefer the Verizon version of the phone, which comes with free mobile hotspot capabilities, faster web browsing, and is available for $50 through Verizon--and at Amazon.com for a penny.

  • Conclusion: The obvious things come to mind as we know that this is almost the same device that was unveiled well over a year ago – which is undoubtedly in the later stages of its product cycle. Sure we've seen some improvements with webOS that showcase the commitment in balancing the platform, and it's evident that all the steps have been gradual – but consumers are surely expecting to see a major overhaul some time soon.
  • Pros: Bright & crisp display, Clean looking design, Multi-tasking friendly webOS
  • Cons: Omission of Mobile HotSpot, Cramped QWERTY, Squeaky quality with the speaker phone

Palm Pre Plus review

  • Conclusion: Throughout the course of reviewing the Pre Plus, I was often met with the feeling that these first-gen webOS models are the imperfect progenitors of something truly outstanding. WebOS is one of the most capable, intuitive and polished mobile operating systems on the market, and it collects those laurels at a very young age with respect to its competitors.

Palm Pre Plus Review

Digitaltrends
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Last year, Palm turned CES upside down with the Palm Pre – one of the few new smartphones to make the iPhone look dated. After a slow-but-auspicious launch over the summer, Palm returned to CES this year with a much less earth-shattering pair of refreshes: the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. Besides migrating to Verizon, the Pre Plus brings a handful of modest updates, including a handful of exterior tweaks, more memory, and doubling storage from 8GB to 16GB.
  • Pros: Full QWERTY keyboard, Sharp-looking capacitive touch screen, Multiple apps run simultaneously, Slick, well-polished interface, Speedy 3G connectivity, Quick-shooting cam produces decent images, Optional Touchstone charger
  • Cons: App Catalog still lags behind competitors (but by less than before), WebOS feels laggy at times, Slightly less intuitive than iPhone
