Best Buy already has stock of the Palm Pixi Plus in stores?
Sometimes there are some rogue stores out there that just defies the odds by blatantly overpowering authority by releasing a handset ahead of its launch date. It’s either that or someone completely was unaware about the news to strictly wait a specific date before it’s a green light to start selling. We still have roughly a few days before the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are expected to officially launch, but there’s one place where you might be able to score one – depending on how well you can talk your way into allowing the sales reps to sell you one. One person was able to seemingly take a snap of a Palm Pixi Plus that was in-stock at their local Best Buy store. Although they weren’t given the option to buy the handset, you never know what can transpire with that one lone rep that wasn’t clear on instructions.

Actually that is a mock display. We already received our Pre Plus mocks in today.

+1 For the mock display. The San Diego Verizon store has had LIVE units since the 9th or 8th? Can't remember what day I was in there to ask to see. Plus doesn't the phone ring out at $99,999 in the best buy system if it's sold early accidently? I guess if you have one of a few types of AMEX with Unlimited monthly balance you can buy early and get the difference back on your card when it actually releases. lol. But why?

I still don't understand the appeal of the pixi. The keyboard is extrmely cramped, and because they actually put the physical keyboard on, the screen isnt very large to compensate for navigation. At least the Pre had the slide out keyborad so the screen can be navigated on.
