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.
I recently purchased a Verizon Wireless MiFi and then saw that Sprint rolled out a 4G WiMAX network in my local area. I said I wanted a MiFi-like device to access this network and Sprint now has such a device available with their Overdrive device from Sierra Wireless. Sprint also lowered the price to $59.99 per month and if the 4G connection is not available you bounce back to a strong 3G connection. Observed download speeds were easily twice as fast as that seen on the Verizon Wireless MiFi so this looks to be the king of high speed wireless connectivity.
