Verizon slices Palm Pre Plus to $29.99, matches Pixi Plus at that price
With the top end of Verizon's smartphone line-up expanded by last week's launch of the HTC Droid Incredible, the carrier needed to make room for the higher margin product. To do that, Big Red is pricing the Palm Pre Plus to move by cutting the webOS handset to $29.99 with a 2 year contract. Hard to believe that the Pre was once considered a worthy challenger to Apple's iPhone. At the new price,Verizon has priced both Palm webOS devices at the same $29.99 figure that the Pixi Plus has previously been lowered to. Next for the pair of Palm phones is AT&T. As we reported just the other day, the carrier's retail stores are beginning to get Pre Plus "dummies" sent to the stores in advance of its GSM launch in the States. Verizon's price tuning of the the Pre Plus can't help AT&T in that regard.
