New HP Wireless stores offer free Palm Pre and Palm Pixi; free accessoiries, too
What better way to celebrate the opening of the HP Wireless store than by helping the company get rid of some unwanted inventory for free. If you are an AT&T or Verizon customer, HP is giving away a free Palm Pre Plus or Palm Pixi Plus and wait...there's more. Along with the handset, HP will toss in a car charger, a mini-bluetooth headset and a leather case for another $100 worth of goodies on the house. And FedEx shipping is also free. The only thing that will cost you some money is the 2 year contract that you will need to sign for either carrier. And while you get a webOS handset and some accessories without opening your wallet, HP gets to write off some of that inventory they recently picked up when they acquired Palm. Of course, HP will most likely write down their remaining stock of the Pre and Pixi down to zero. It would be a smart move because they can take the hit now which will exaggerate the upside later. The ad says that this is for a limited time only, and with no precise dates to give you, if you have any interest in the offer, we would suggest you not procrastinate.

I ditched my storm for the pre and so far I'm pleased with the phone. It helps that the greatly exagerated expectations are no longer there. Plus the free mobile hotspot from verizon sealed the deal.

Storm Vs Pre is like choosing between getting kicked in the head or the gut....

If they make a new one with a larger screen and better keyboard they could get back on track.

Aside from the cramped keyboard, the pre is a great phone. I aquired a palm pre plus after my incredible toasted and Verizon had no replacements, and I'm using it until my Droid X is shipped on the 15th. With some minor mods (overclocking to 800 mhz, theme changes, and on screen keyboard add-on,) the phone is really a lot of fun and there are some very cool and reasonably priced 3D games and useful apps. Come on HP make a big screen WebOS beast.
