Palm Pre Plus Review
Palm’s follow-up to the Pre doubles as a mobile hotspot and is just as easy to use, but it could use a bit more speed.
(3.5 out of 5)
Think of it as the anti-Droid. While Motorola’s beast of a smart phone sports a monstrous screen, a blocky design, and lots of muscle, the Palm Pre Plus ($149 from Verizon Wireless with two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate) is all about elegance and ease of use. What makes the Pre Plus different from its predecessor on Sprint is more memory, an improved keyboard, and a unique application that turns the device into a mobile router. Although we have some of the complaints about the Pre Plus as the original Pre (namely sluggish performance and relatively short battery life), it’s still one of the best smart phones available from Verizon Wireless.
