AT&T will release the Palm Pre Plus and the 3G MicroCell on May 16

It seems like only a month-and-a-bit ago that AT&T said they’d release some Palm handsets “in the coming months”. And now we’re getting word that the Palm Pre Plus will launch on the nation’s doesn’t-seem-it-but-apparently-is fastest network on May 16.

Now, the last time we heard that AT&T were gonna play sweet with Palm, the Pre Plus was planned to go for $149.99 after a mail-in rebate.

A lot has happened since then, so I think it would probably be foolish for AT&T to continue at that price point, but we’ll have to wait until they make an official announcement before we know for sure.

Engadget broke the news with a screen shot from an equipment brief showing the nation-wide launch date, and say that the tipster also told them that the 3G Microcell will also launch on the same day.

So if you’ve been plagued by poor reception, your saviour will be here in a little over a week. Good times, good times.
