Yes, Monday the 25th both the Palm Pixi Plus and the Pre Plus will be hitting the Verizon network. They have an offer on both so that you can get a $100 rebate on them dropping the price quite a bit, and they even have a better offer where you could a free Palm Pixi Plus. You can either buy the Pre Plus or the Pixi Plus and get a Pixi Plus for free after mail-in rebate, but the offer is only valid until February 14th. The prices would be $149 for the Pres Plus and $99 for the Pixi Plus after the rebates, and both of course require the two—year agreement. Both of these devices come with a built-in 3G Mobile HotSpot that can be used to enable or share the connection on up to five other wi-fi capable devices.
Yesterday morning Fedex delivered both the Pres Plus and the Pixi Plus to me for review, so be on the look out for those reviews after I get in some time with them. For now though I took some pictures of them and I’ve included the official Press Release about the phone hitting Verizon on Monday.
