CES: Verizon Wireless Gets Palm Pre Plus, Pixi Plus; New Firmware Adds Flash 10.1
At CES yesterday, Palm had unveiled its Pixi Plus and Pre Plus, which are essentially updated versions of the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi currently on Sprint. The new models will all sport WiFi (Sprint Pixi currently does not have WiFi), double the internal storage capacity to 16 GB, and the Pre Plus will also get double the RAM.
Most notably, the updated models will come with an app update to allow the devices to act like a MiFi, allowing you to share your wireless 3G connection over the device’s WiFi with up to five other devices.
Palm also mentions a firmware update in February, at which point, we may see Flash 10.1 for mobile on the device’s browser!
