Price Drop Ahead for Sprint's Palm Smartphones?

Tue Sep 8, 2009 - 9:55 AM EDT - By Annie Latham

According to a Sprint Connection post, the speculation was partially correct.

Sprint is not offering a $50 price cut on the Palm Pre smartphone, as was rumored early today. It's $100 -- in the form of a service credit to new customers.

The promotion, which started today and ends Oct. 10, essentially cuts the price of the Pre from $199.99 to $99.99. Customers must sign up for a two-year contract.


According to a post appearing at our sister site, PreCentral, from September 8 to October 31, 2009, "indirect partners" will be able to sell the Pre for $149.99 after mail-in rebate.

This information applies only to these indirect Sprint retail channels, though it seems reasonable that identical price cuts will take place via Sprint’s own channels (retail stores, telesales, and Sprint.com). And as usual, the price of admission comes with an Everything Data or Simply Everything plan attached.

That also means that the rest of the Palm family of smartphones will be available for less:

Palm Centro for $29.99
Treo 755p for $99.99
Treo 800w for $49.99
Treo Pro for $199.99

These are all "new contract" prices.
