Running on the Palm webOS mobile platform, the 3G-enabled Palm Pre Plus for AT&T brings together all of your important information from where it resides--on your phone, at your workplace, at home, or on the Web--into a single mobile device. In addition to high-speed connectivity on AT&T's lightning quick HSPDA 3G network, the phone's memory has been doubled to 16 GB. Additionally, with AT&T's 3G network, you can make a call while simultaneously receiving picture/text messages and e-mail or viewing Web pages.
The Palm Pre Plus features the Palm webOS platform, 16 GB memory, vibrantly colorful touchscreen-enabled display, and slide-out full QWERTY keyboard.
The phone's slide-out full QWERTY keyboard puts it all at your fingertips, and the multi-touch screen lets you move back and forth between open applications using natural gestures. With Palm webOS, you can keep multiple activities open and move easily between them--like flipping through a deck of cards, using natural gestures. This allows for easy movement between messaging and e-mail or searching the Web while listening to music, and items are rearranged simply by dragging them.
Palm's webOS interface brings together the most important information from your phone, at work or on the Web, into one logical view. In addition to linking information from Google, Facebook, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and LinkedIn, Palm Pre Plus adds Yahoo! integration to Palm Synergy.
