Feeling blue

AT&T will offer the Palm Pixi Plus in two colors: black or blue. You will also still be able to purchase additional backplate covers in a variety of colors, including pink, orange, and green, or one of the artist design series covers.

Keyboard

Physically, the Pixi Plus for AT&T doesn't differ from the version that is available from Verizon Wireless, so you get the same keyboard. The buttons are small, but it's actually pretty easy to use and offers a nice tactile feedback.

Cute and petite

The Pixi name is quite appropriate as the device is quite compact and cute. The smartphone measures 4.37 inches tall by 2.17 inches wide by 0.43 inch thick and weighs 3.26 ounces.

Palm Pre Plus

AT&T will offer the Palm Pre Plus for $149.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. It will ship with WebOS 1.4 out of the box (as will the Pixi Plus) and provides access to the carrier's more than 20,000 Wi-Fi hot spots around the country as part of the unlimited data plan.

Touchstone cover

Like the Verizon Pre Plus, the AT&T model will ship with the inductive back cover in the box so you can use it with a Touchstone dock (which you will have to buy separately for $45).

Keyboard

Thankfully, Palm improved the keyboard from the original Pre by increasing the key travel space and making the buttons feel less gummy.
