Verizon is a forerunner on multiple fronts. For starters, Verizon made a big bet on its FiOS fiber-optic to the home network. That network is now giving Verizon the means to compete with cable giants such as Comcast. Verizon's wireless unit is also a powerhouse. The company is working to roll out 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in an effort to leapfrog rival AT&T.

This review is one of the hardest I had to write because I have a long history with Palm devices (started using them in 1997) and I had high hopes for their new WebOS operating system after they blew us all away at CES 2009. I actually stood in line and bought my own Sprint Palm Pre last summer and posted some thoughts on it at that time. There have been several software updates since last year and at CES 2010 Palm announced the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus launching on Verizon Wireless with the ability for the Pre Plus to act as a MiFi and share out wireless Internet. Palm sent me a device to try out for a couple of weeks and I am glad they did because they saved me a ton of money since I was considering a switch from my Verizon MiFi to the Pre Plus.

You will also find a 3.2 megapixel camera, 480x360 pixel screen, integrated GPS, and more.
