Palm Pre Plus now available via AT&T Palm has announced today that the Pre Plus smartphone is now available via AT&T, with little brother the Pixi Plus coming June 6th.
AT&T made note a few weeks ago that the Pre Plus was "coming soon," and that has come to fruition this weekend.

The device will be exactly like the Pre Plus that launched for Verizon earlier this year, except it will use a GSM radio and require a SIM card.

Because the phone has not been selling, (from any carrier), Verizon slashed the price to $30 USD with contract, and has thrown in Mobile HotSpot for free (normally $30 per month). AT&T is not being so generous.

The leading American GSM carrier will charge $150 for the phone with contract, and Mobile HotSpot tethering will cost the full $30 per month.

At that price, it hardly seems that users will opt for WebOS over the iPhone.
