Palm Pre Call

Coming in from all corners are calls and online discussions with Sprint's sales staff, and it seems that with the release finally pinned down they've actually been given some useful information. Like how much does the Palm Pre cost? We've been told that the Pre will be $199.99 for new contracts (after a $100 mail-in-rebate), but there are a good portion of us who are pining for the Pre and yet are not yet eligible for contract upgrade pricing. That's where the Sprint math comes in:

Retail Price - $549.99
2-year service agreement - $150.00
Instant rebate - $100.00
Mail-in rebate (MIR) - $100.00
Net price - $199.99 (after full upgrade rebate)

Current Sprint customers are eligible for new equipment upgrade discounts (in place of the service agreement discount) of $75 for 12 months and $150 for 22 months. Sprint Premiere customers can get the full $150 after 12 months.
