Sprint's Palm Pixi drops all the way down to free

Sprint's Palm Pixi drops all the way down to free
Some people just wonder how could Verizon's Palm Pixi Plus be offered at a lower price point than Sprint's Palm Pixi – especially when the Pixi Plus is superior in almost every way. As if the latest turn of events regarding RadioShack's inventory of Palm webOS devices wasn't any more of an indication, Sprint has gone ahead and lowered the price of the Palm Pixi all the way down to free with a new contract. Now it looks as though anywhere you turn, the device is being sold with no money required upfront for ownership – but it makes you wonder if this is spelling the beginning of the end for Palm. Sure it's now being sold for free from just about any direct or indirect retailer, but there is just this sense of dread associated with this move as the mobile world is intently gazing at Palm to see what direction they are gravitating towards. However, this should hopefully spur some customer to potentially side with the sleek handset and ultimately contribute to Palm's fortunes.

I disagree.. 1. They still have working capital. 2. They once had a great product and haven't completely destroyed their name. 3. Web OS seems to have been a hit and may be a competitor in the marketplaced if licensed to cell manufacturers. Someone will buy Palm before it fails completely.
