    My first qustion will be what OS version will be on there?

    Secondly, any ideas as to what AT&T will load the phone down with progam wise? Will I be able to remove most or all of it? Anything I'd want to keep and use?

    Reports about 1.4.2 are floating around, although I haven't seen it on DSLReports speed test.

    As for apps... here: Palm webOS™ - Palm® Pre™ Plus & Palm® Pixi™ Plus - Wireless from AT&T

    Thank god dev mode isn't locked out. Can debrand using doctor if necessary.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLI T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    Subject: RE: Question about Pre Plus going to AT&T

    Hi xx,

    At launch, AT&T Pre Plus supports HSDPA 3.6, and going forward, we will work with AT&T to re-assess support for HSDPA 7.2.

    Thanks very much,

    Interesting. I knew that the radio could do 7.2 HSDPA b/c the specs are there. Based on the response it appears to be a software option that Palm can activate thru an OTA update when ATT gives them the go ahead. Typical ATT. Just like ATT told them to remove the mobile hotspot app. But I guess that for now it doesn't effect many people b/c most of ATT's cell sites have not been upgraded to 3.6 let alone the few that have been upgraded to 7.2 and I do mean few.

    You can download webpages faster. In my area we are at 3.6 and I constantly hit 3.5 which is fine for me. Its about as fast as Sprint's WiMax which gets somewhere on average of 4mbps down. If you live in an area that gets 7.2 you'll be doing better than Sprint's WiMax on ATT's 3.5g tech. Kind of ironic isn't it that ATT's 3.5G tech is about as fast (3.6) and faster (7.2) than Sprint's 4G tech?

    Unless Palm switched their chip somewhere during manufacturing from the 6260, 3.6Mbps is a hardware limit.

    AT&T website has a newsletter (from April to it's investors i believe) in PDF about how they plan to convert all their network to 7.2 by end of 2010. Found it with "palm pre plus" search on att site.

    They can upgrade all their network all they want. Heck we have 21Mbps HSPA+ in Canada on Bellus and Robbers. But we don't have any devices for it, most just still run at 3.6.

    Listing the Pre Plus there probably just says it's 3G HSPA capable.

    That's a shame.

    http://www.att.com/Investor/Financia...0_IB_FINAL.pdf

    from above pdf:
    As a first step, in January AT&T deployed
    HSPA 7.2 software nationwide. The company
    is now deploying additional backhaul
    connections to cell towers to support
    HSPA 7.2 and future LTE deployments.
    These software and backhaul upgrades are
    expected to double the theoretical peak
    speeds of AT&Ts 3G network, although
    actual speeds will be less depending on
    location and environment. By the end of
    2010, the company expects the majority
    of its mobile data traffic will be carried
    over the expanded fiber-based HSPA 7.2
    and LTE-capable backhaul.
    AT&T offers 10 HSPA 7.2-compatible
    devices today, with millions of customers
    already using them.

    Now this is a newletter to investors. Other places on website actually have full rollout for 7.2 in 2011.

    Wahahaaha, wait, REALLY??? So all the drool about the Evo and its dreamy 4G is a puff of smoke because my O2 GSM Pre gets HSDPA 7.2 anyway? HAHAHAHAHAHA Oh got, I always figured WiMax would be just like LTE, only a different approach...

    Honestly, all this tech talk is moot... wireless data rates never actually get up to their theoretical values anyways.

    As long as I don't get disrupted during data transmissions or voice calls, the speed is reasonable and it works, I couldn't care less if it's 4G or some uber infinity G.

    Here's Engadget's actual use of Sprint's 4G with the EVO: Sprint's HTC EVO 4G put through its bandwidth-sucking paces -- Engadget.
