Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus are two upcoming Verizon phones that will hit the stores sometime this year. Palm had created the Pre and the Pixi models earlier for Sprint. While Verizon and AT&T are vying with each other to get these two impressive Palm phones, Verizon seems to have beaten its rival, at least for the time being. Reports claim that these two coveted Palm devices are arriving in the Verizon portfolio as Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus.Palm Pre Plus
Palm Pre Plus is a touchscreen smartphone with 3.1 inches capacitive touch display with 320 x 480 pixels resolution. It has a slide out QWERTY keyboard. It will sport a 3 megapixel camera with LED flash. However, you cannot use the phone camera for capturing videos. This is a major lacuna of the Palm Pre Plus device. This upcoming Verizon phone is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled.
The integrated media player of this Palm phone supports audio and video files in prominent formats. You can use Palm Pre Plus for sharing text documents and pictures. It supports only picture based multimedia messaging. The 16GB internal storage space of Palm Pre Plus should be adequate for users. However, if you could not cram all your files and documents in the internal storage space, you could not take advantage of external memory expansion, because microSD memory slot is missing from this device.
Palm Pixi Plus
Palm Pixi Plus is a bar shaped phone featuring a multi touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard. The 2.63 inches capacitive touch screen of the device supports images of 320 x 400 pixels resolutions. Palm Pixi Plus boasts a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash. Just like the camera of Palm Pre Plus, Pixi Plus’ camera does not support video recording. Although, you can use the Palm Pixi Plus handset for exchanging multi media messages, but the MMS messages will be limited only to picture files.
With the integrated MP3 player of the phone, users can enjoy music on the go. The built-in media player of Pixi Plus will support video playback. Palm Pixi Plus will support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. It offers 8GB of internal storage space. However, this Palm handset of Verizon is devoid of microSD memory card slot.
