Bell axes the 1-year & 2-year pricing options for the Palm Pre
You'd think that the trend for Palm'scurrent line of webOS handsets are expected to seemingly drop inprice dramatically, but it's a little bit awkward to find a wirelesscarrier regressing in trying to move sales for certain devices.Although US consumers have yet to experience what it feels like to behandcuffed to a contract, such as how our friends in Canada are putthrough, Bell has decided to ax the pricing options for 1-year and2-year on contract options for the Palm Pre. Its a bit unbelievableat first, especially when Bell dropped the price all the way down tofree for 2 and 3 year agreements, but the reasoning in only offeringthe 3-year one makes you wonder. Now the only pricing options listedon Bell's web site are the $0.00 price for the Palm Pre for a 3-yearcontract and the full outright price of $295.95. Maybe Bell figuredout they could still be gaining some money with the Palm Pre as theprice of the handset has been dropping everywhere? Whatever the caseis, it's now even more tough to fathom that customers are subjectedto keeping the almost one year old Palm Pre for another three years oftheir lives – it's tough, but we guess that it'll have to settle insome time.
