Shiny penny can get you either a Palm Pre Plus or Pixi Plus on Amazon
We can't admit that it's an all-time low for either of the devices, but Amazon has gone ahead and chopped the prices of both the Palm Pixi Plus and Pre Plus to a mere $0.01. Although we can always see it drop further by a cent to free, Amazon takes both webOS devices and presents an attractive price to either of the phones. So just about anyone who can check the fine corners and cracks of their living room sofas can get themselves a shiny new webOS powered device. Just imagine back when the Palm Pre made its arrival on Sprint, it sported a then standard price of $199.99 on contract. Fast forward 10 months later and here we are finding the top line model literally going for a penny – the only thing left after this is to start giving away money to entice people to purchase the handsets; which isn't uncommon as well. Nonetheless, this is just another step in the cycle that will hopefully spur some additional sales of the two smartphones.

They need to make more form factors.

If I could get a Pixi form factor with the innards of the Pre (memory, camera, and a solid processor), I might drop my Blackberry. The hotspot functionality, sleek form factor and WebOS are really nice. It's too bad too, I think if Palm had really pushed to license out this OS, manufacturers like HTC and others could have included it in their line up. Certainly Motorola could have been a willing partner, since Android doesn't seem to have that Enterprise feature set down...oh well. By the way, the Storm2 9550 is for sale for $0.01 on Amazon too...

Wow, that's pathetic that the only way they can get rid of the phones is to give them away. The phones really aren't as bad as people make them out to be. Maybe it's the people in charge of selling the phones that they need to give away. haha

Phones may not be that bad...but the fact that Palm is thirstin to be bought be someone says that the phones aren't that great. I said it once and I'll say it again...nice OS, terrible form factor. Just proof that an ugly phone, no matter what it does...nobody wants.
