Palm Prices Plunge

Wow. When I wrote about Palm’s Pre Plus on Verizon one month ago, it was $150 (after a $100 rebate) on a two year contract, and the Mobile Hotspot feature was $40 a month. Now the Pre Plus is $50, and Mobile Hotspot is free. (The Pe Plus’s little sibling, the Pixi Plus, is $30.) The price cuts make the nifty Pre Plus one of the best bargains in smartphones–maybe the best buy.

    Good for future Palm customers on Verizon. But it’s a troubling move, implying to me that Verizon can’t unload units. And they want to.

    Yeah, it’s worrisome.

    Ditto the above. It’s bad when you have a good phone you drop the price on — remember the Razr? It was /the/ phone to have until the price got ultra cheap, and suddenly nobody wanted it anymore. It’s even worse when you have a product that’s not selling well to start with and then you have a fire sale.
