Verizon Palm Pre | All about the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi on Verizon

TAG | Consumer Electronics Show

The biggest news coming from Palm at CES is that it will be offering two new(ish) devices exclusively from Verizon Wireless. The Pre Plus and Pixi Plus bring new features to each device plus a cool mobile hotspot application.

Both of these revised devices will be available from Verizon Wireless on January 25. Pricing was not disclosed.

The Pre Plus differs from the original in that it has a redesigned exterior, improved navigation, two times the storage (16GB), and it will now ship with a Touchstone-compatible back cover.

The Pixi Plus now includes Wi-Fi, which was not previously available on the Sprint version.

Both devices will have a new application exclusive to Verizon which turns them into mobile hotspots. Similar to a Novatel MiFi, it uses Verizon’s 3G network to connect to the Internet. It will then allow up to five other devices to tether via Wi-Fi for Internet access.

The rumor on the street is that Verizon just ordered 400,000 handsets from Palm. Since Palm has a keynote scheduled for the 7th at CES, perhaps Verizon knows something that the rest of us don’t. Analysts are predicting upgraded handsets and an update to the webOS, but Palm is pretty good at keeping leaks to a minimum, so we’ll probably have to wait until they or Verizon make it official.

Debuting at CES 2009, the Palm Pre breathed new life into a company struggling to defend its relevance in the smartphone space. More than that though, the Pre and Palm WebOS was a game changer in the way that it handled contact management and multitasking. Hopefully, we’ll see.
