So, this is interesting. Via an ‘indirect partner retail dealer’ tipster over at PreCentral, we’ve learned that the Palm Pre may indeed be taking a price cut. From September 8th through October 31st. According to the tipster, ‘Indirect partners’ may start pushing the Pre for $149.99 after a mail-in rebate. Groovy. No details on the exact ‘why’ of the price drop, but one has to think the HTC Hero arriving at Sprint for $179.99 has something to do with it.
Let’s chalk this up as rumor for now, but a very credible one. If the details are true, we should be able to pick up a Pre from Sprint’s partners like Best Buy Mobile starting… my gosh, tomorrow! We’ll have to keep our ears to the ground for more on this one!
Note: If you’ve already bought your Pre… sorry, you can’t get any money back. That’s the price you paid to enjoy the Pre so far.
Note, Note: If you take a closer look, you may notice some other discounts… Plus, numerous now discontinued phones available for free on any plan, while inventories last…
