Best Buy Launching A Trial Run Of The Palm Pre On June 7; No Contract For $1,000

Labels: , , ,

It's not 100% confirmed, but it looks like the Palm Pre could be trial launching (whatever that means) on June 7 at a Best Buy near you. Apparently, 4,500 units will be handed out to Best Buy locations across America - lucky them. "Pricing is supposedly still being discussed but the probable points are as follows: New customers with a 2-year contract, $199.99. Existing customer upgrades, $299.99. Outright, $999.99." Wow, $1,000 for a no-contract Palm Pre is insane. According to iSuppli the Pre only costs $170 USD to make, so for Palm to charge $1,000 would be a huge profit. Damn.
