Sprint finally submits and prices the Palm Pre & Pixi accordingly

Sprint finally submits and prices the Palm Pre & Pixi accordingly
Call it a long time coming or something else, but Sprint is finally doing what's right by dramatically reducing the pricing of their two webOS powered devices. It's almost difficult to fathom that the over one year old Palm Pre that Sprint has been harboring was priced higher than Verizon's Palm Pre Plus at $149.99 on-contract. Though, the Palm Pixi's pricing has been set at a tolerable $49.99 for the better portion of the last few months, it still pales in comparison to its Plus counterpart.

However, Sprint corrected things altogether by simply placing the aging Palm Pre at $49.99 and Palm Pixi for free with your signature on a 2-year agreement. Regardless, it still doesn't compare to their inexpensively Plus counterparts as they boast better specs and functionality like Mobile HotSpot on board. So if you're intent on signing a contract with Sprint, you can now add these two former relevant handsets into considertion.

I'd rather wait for a better device with the web OS platform to be released by HP than get that POS!

Well HP better get it right then. Web OS isn't compelling enough to put out one or two devices and think customers are gonna flock back to palm. They need to totally revive that brand with two new phones follows by two more a few months later.

Well the pricing is not the concern but it is the features and the components that a device matters. Thanks, Palm Pixi review

Would certainly wait for some time to go for a better one. It is better to pay more for good features. Digital Camera Reviews
