HP quickly drops the price of the Palm Pre 2 for Verizon to $30 on-contract
If you recently purchase the Palm Pre 2 through Verizon Wireless, you’re probably going to kick yourself in the behind about it because HP has tremendously slashed the pricing for its webOS powered smartphone.

Sure it might be beneficial to go with your carrier for most occasions when purchasing a new phone, but HP seems like they really want you to buy it from them. That’s because the handset is now priced at $29.99 with a 2-year agreement on their HP Wireless Central web site. You heard that right, this device can be bought for super cheap through HP directly, but if you prefer the no-contract route, your best option is still to side with Verizon since they’re selling it for $409.99 versus the $429.999 that HP is asking.

Naturally, some people would believe that its price point right now is fitting since we’re expected to see its successor arrive some time in the very near future. But if you just can’t wait for that to come around, then probably this solution might fit the bill in the meantime.

This is what happens when you announce the replacement for the phone before it even goes on sale.... Who wants an obsolete product before it even goes on sale? I wonder if it will be offered for free before the end of March?

I have a feeling that it will go for free before the month is up...... With saying that it is still a good phone.

Palm must have already had like 500 (sitting in a box) of these already in development when they got bought by HP because releasing this phone just doesn't make sense. I guess just wanted something on the market so it wouldn't seem like were totally absent.

So what is the best deal if Verizon says I am not eligible to upgrade until next January? My Pre+ is getting pretty beat up.
