Following O2 Germany, Palm and O2 UK today announced that the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus phones will be available in the UK on O2 from 28 May. The Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus showcase the defining features of Palm webOS, including the ability to run multiple applications simultaneously and easily move between them; the power of Palm Synergy, which brings customers' information from the many places it resides into a single, more comprehensive view; unobtrusive notifications; and universal search. Palm webOS also has a unique model of over-the-air software updates that delivers new features and performance improvements directly to a user's phone.
With a slider keyboard, a large touchscreen and a high-performance processor, the Palm Pre Plus is Palm's full-featured webOS smartphone. It's designed for people who want an easy-to-use phone with advanced features to help manage the different aspects of their lives, both personal and professional. The keyboard makes for quick and easy typing, while the unique gesture area provides a sleek look and intuitive navigation.
Customers also get 16 GB of storage (~15 GB user available) for applications and media. Pre Plus comes with the Palm Touchstone Back Cover, so it's compatible out of the box with the revolutionary inductive Touchstone Charging Dock (sold separately).
As Palm's thinnest phone to date, the Palm Pixi Plus fits easily in your hand or pocket and offers a host of powerful features. It's great for social communicators and first-time smartphone buyers who want an affordable phone with a full QWERTY keyboard instantly accessible for messaging and web content.
With the color Palm Pixi Touchstone Back Covers and the Palm Pixi Artist Series Back Covers, which are compatible with the Touchstone Charging Dock, you can easily switch covers to suit your mood and style (all will be sold separately at www.palm.com/uk).
The Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus will be available from free in all O2 stores and online from O2 UK.
