Treo 180 only $99 with rebate

Sun Dec 8, 2002 - 1:28 PM EST - By Michael Ducker

Handspring and T-Mobile are offering a $150 mail-in-rebate when you purchase a Treo 180 before December 31st, 2002 and activate a $19.99 a month GPRS add-on plan or higher. This rebate brings the final price of a Treo 180 down to just $99! The $99 after rebate incentive on Treo 180 is exclusively available at Handspring's website.

"With this promotion, Handspring is delivering one of the most powerful communications products available for less than the price of a basic PDA," said Joe Sipher, vice president of marketing for Handspring, Inc. "At $99, the ability to combine a mobile phone with a Palm OS organizer is more compelling than ever. And with full web browsing and messaging, no other product comes close to delivering this much value today."

The $19.99 a month plan gives 10 MB, while the $34.99 a month plan gives 20 MB.

Michael Comments: Amazing price, but it is kind of sick and disgusting to see how much T-Mobile (and AT&T) charge for GPRS. They really expect customers to purchase a plan this expensive for data? Sprint has it right, with $10 a month unlimited. I think I was using (with my Treo 300 review unit) about 5-10 MB a week... I can't imagine the costs of using GPRS on the T-Mobile network. I think I will stick with CSD, thank you very much!
