With Palm being snapped up by HP, there is a lot of possible strategy change that is expected with the smartphone manufacturer. This means that the present flagship products, Palm Pre and Pixi may not be in the scheme of things in sometime now, though the company’s future itself is secure.
This has led to Verizon announcing a fire sale of the two devices. The 16GB 3G enabled version of Palm Pre Plus from Verizon will now be available at just $29 with a two year contract. This is $120 less than what customers paid yesterday! Sprint’s version of the device still sells at $149 though a commensurate price drop is imminent.[via Yahoo News]
