Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus Verizon Pricing (with BOGO!) 16

by Dieter Bohn Wed, 20 Jan 2010 10:00 pm EST

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.

What do you think?

I think good for palm!!! Hope this boosts their customer base. As much as I don't care for Verizon...I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Verizon brothers and sisters...:)

Very good for Palm. When consumers see the amount of storage, they see iPhone: 16GB for $199 and Pre: 16GB for $149.

Nice marketing move, Palm. =)

palm doesnt set the pricing plan verizon does

great!..... now, let's see TV ads

+1 itz a lil over due

what is the month to month price with no contract?

If you order online you won't have to pay the rebate, that's a good tip to give to everyone.

Those BOGO sales are good for family plans. I guess it's nice to have a backup phone but I would have preferred credit on 1st phone's price! I guess you can ebay the spare?

I think sprint is shooting themself in the foot if they don't lower their palm prices.

I will be closing my

Welcome for joining us to enjoy the Palm Pre. It is great to hear that you have been waiting patiently for this incredible device; it is simply awesome! Palm has made the whole journey exciting for all of us with frequent updates to webOS (what a beautiful gift). The last time I was this excited about a computing device was when I bought my first personal computer in 1987, the IBM PC Model 50. It came with 20 MB of storage; how technology has progressed. Think about it, you are getting 16 GB of storage

I have been waiting since LAST JANUARY for my Pre, and Monday morning, I plan to be in line (come rain or shine) for my VZW Palm Pre Plus! Looks like I will be getting the Pixi Plus TOO (backup phone?? for the husband who hates all cell phones {no way}, for the son resuming college--probably; but then what COLOR?) VZW is the ONLY carrier in my neck of the woods with ANY coverage (sorry Sprint, we gave up you when no service in my house!), so I am sticking.
Four days. . .and counting! Thanks to all of you--I have learned so much and KNOW I will learn more when I have my own Pre!!

Oh yea...can't wait ill be there getting my pre plus during my lunch break. Does anyone know if u need to activate the BOGO free pixi plus as well.

How is sprint shooting itself in the foot? Its plans are much much cheaper if you look at it in the long run.

Thanks for the consolidation. I believe they mostly need this at the moment. It could have bene harder in case they are alone. Buy Backlinks
