In this era when new smartphones seem to be released every day, you just need to wait a couple of months and the price of the phone you want will be slashed in half or more.
With the Palm Pixi reportedly set for release before the holiday season, the Pre, which was originally sold for $199.99 when it was first available in June, is now going for $79.99 at Wal-Mart. Amazon started selling the device for $99.99 last week, but the discount giant one-upped the online retail store. You will have to shell out $179.99 when you make your purchase, but you get $100 back through a mail-in rebate. And of course a two-year service commitment is required.
