Palm have announced the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, and as expected they're headed to Verizon Wireless.  The Palm Pre Plus doubles memory to 16GB and drops the navigation button, while the Pixi Plus gets the WiFi that was missing from the Sprint Pixi.  Meanwhile both Verizon handsets will get a new 3G mobile hotspot application that, like a MiFi, will allow users to share their EVDO Rev.A connection with up to five connected WiFi clients.

Palm Mansion to Feature 5-Inch Display, webOS 2.0 Coming to All Devices Soon [UPDATE: Palm's Josh Marinacci Video Speech Added]

When Palm and HP officially announced the webOS 2.0-equipped Palm Pre 2, we hear that the device would be launching on Verizon in the United States "in the coming months."

Palm tip “exciting” next year with new devices & webOS update

While HP has been keen to talk up the positive benefits of acquiring Palm and webOS, they've also been reluctant to commit to any specifics - we've heard about tablets and printers running the platform, but nothing that left us particularly confident about smartphones.  Now, thanks to an unnamed Palm spokesperson talking during an AT&T developers webinar, we have a few more tidbits; nothing concrete, but confirmation that Palm is "working on future devices" together with a "new version of the OS".

Palm App Catalog glitch locks out webOS users

Palm App Catalog glitch locks out webOS users

Palm's App Catalog appears to have suffered a meltdown of sorts, with users of Palm Pre, Pixi, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus handsets reporting that after having downloaded a new title - whether paid or free - no aftermarket software will run properly.  The issue remains even after fully erasing and restarting the phone; in fact, the apps are still installed even after that process is completed.  However core functionality - calls, messaging and data - are all unaffected.
