Who said Palm was going down without a fight? Sure, they've had their share of financial troubles as of late, but that doesn't mean that they can't play in the same field as the big boys. Proving that they still have some fight left in them, the maker of the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus announced that the two devices would be coming to AT&T later in the year. The Pixi Plus will cost $49.99 and the Pre Plus will cost $149.99, both after mail-in rebate and new two-year agreement.
