Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus Verizon Pricing (with BOGO!)
We now know the cost of the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus on Verizon - available everywhere on January 25th:
- Palm Pre Plus: $149.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and 2 year contract
- Palm Pixi Plus:: $99 after $100 mail-in rebate and 2 year contract.
In addition to Verizon's new calling and data plans, we also know the cost of the Mobile Hotspot service: $40 per month for 5 gigs with a 5c per meg overage fee. This compares well to Verizon's standalone mobile broadband plan, which clocks in at $59.99 for the same amount of data.
We'd like to gripe about the mail-in rebate, but them's the breaks in our subsidized day and age. Be sure to check out our full review of the Palm Pre Plus and our full review of the Palm Pixi Plus - to us it looks like there's more than enough differentiation between the two phones to justify the price difference.
But wait, as they say, there's more! Verizon also confirmed to us that there will be a "Buy One, Get One" offer: Buy a Palm Pre Plus or Palm Pixi Plus, get a Palm Pixi Plus for free after mail-in rebate. The offer is good through February 14th. In other words, the earlier rumor was exactly correct.
