In a rather unusual move for a carrier long fond of sizable mail-in rebate offers, the Boy Genius Report brings news that
, as of Friday, March 5th, Verizon Wireless is immediately offering their two Palm webOS devices without mail-in rebates. The carrier will instead offer the Palm Pre Plus for $149.99 out the door with a two-year contract. The Palm Pixi Plus will now ring in at $79.99 under the same terms.
While a great deal for would-be Verizon webOS owners everywhere, especially on the heels of last week's webOS 1.4 update release and the ongoing "BOGO offer", the pricing still comes in above Best Buy's in-store pricing of $49.99 and $99.99 for the two smartphones.
