Verizon drops mail-in rebate on Pre Plus, Pixi Plus

As rumored at BGR yesterday, today Verizon has dropped the mail-in rebate on the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus. The price for the Pre Plus is $149.99 with a new two-year contract, the Pixi Plus clocks in at $79.99.  Wireless Week reports that a Verizon spokeswoman said they were responding to consumer demand: "there was 'a brief period where we tested mail-in rebates on some phones. We have found that online customers expect instant rebates and since this is a very competitive arena in which to do business, we responded accordingly.'"

Whether this is a response to poor initial sales on Verizon or just a sign that Veriozn is doing right by getting rid of a source of annoyance for customers is an open question - but either way we're pleased to see the mail-in rebate go away.

Thanks to everybody who sent this in!
