Verizon Palm Pre Plus Pricing Slips to a Modest $30 at Walmart

March 11, 2010, By Atul Roach

A couple of moths back when the Palm Pre Plus broke cover at the CES 2010 and was later endorsed by Big Red in the US, it was one of the most talked about phones. In a matter of months, the Pre Plus has become more of a disposition item for VZW as it wants to get rid of the Pre Plus at the lowest possible costs. Initially, the Palm Pre Plus webOS laden device cost $149.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate on the Verizon website.

To attract more customers, VZW even floated the BOGO offer where the Pre Plus could be taken for free on the Pixi Plus purchase. The current listed price for the VZW Palm Pre Plus is a shocking $30 which tells you the entire story.

The BOGO offer also couldn’t do much good for VZW and hence the prices had to be dropped severely. The Pre Plus was available for $70 a couple of weeks ago at Walmart and at that time, no one expected an ‘amusing’ $40 further price drop. Even Amazon has listed the Pre Plus for $39.99 on a two-year contract.

Things have worsened for VZW as the Pre Plus users have had issues with its MMS and WiFi features and one can understand why VZW is disregarding the Palm Pre Plus webOS laden handset. [via: Barrons]
