Palm hopes to lure in more customers with a very sweet deal

Verizon has just posted a deal on the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus smartphones that is nothing short of incredible.

With all Palm's recent struggles, the company is turning to big discounts to try to heat up sales.  It hopes that sales of webOS phones, originally carried by Sprint, will pick up now that they are carried on Verizon, the nation's largest wireless network.

That seems virtually certain to happen, now that Verizon has offered a pretty incredible deal on the phones.  It's slashed the price of Pre Plus smart phones from the launch price of $149.99 down to $49.99 and the price of the Palm Pixi from $99.99 at launch down to $29.99, with a two-year contract.

But that's not all.  According to multiple reports, the phones will still be eligible for Verizon's Buy-One-Get-One [free] promotion.  That means that with BOGO, you should be able to score two webOS smart phones for a mere $29.99 with 2 year contract. 

But the deals don't stop there.  Verizon apparently has cut the $40 hotspot fee for using the Palm devices as wireless hotspots down to nothing.  In other words, in addition to 2 smart phones $29.99 (and a 2 phone contract) will also score you a free 5 Gb/month hotspot, something which costs up to $60/month from competitors.

For single users, you can also score a Palm Pre Plus with two-year Verizon contract for $29.99 from Amazon.com.  This offer has been available since early last month.

The Pre Plus comes packed with a 3.1-inch multi-touch screen with a vibrant 24-bit color, 320×480 resolution HVGA display, 3-megapixel camera with LED flash, extended depth of field, and geotagging, Accelerometer and proximity sensor, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1, GPS navigation capabilities via VZ Navigator service, 3.5mm headset jack and 16GB of internal memory.  It enjoys slender packaging, like the iPhone, measuring 3.9 x 2.3 x 0.67 in. and weighing in at 4.89 oz.

Perhaps overshadowed by this bargain was last weeks' news that the Pre Plus and Pixi plus will be hitting the AT&T network later this year.  The nation's fastest data network and second biggest network in terms of subscribers, AT&T will reported offer the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus for $149.99 and $49.99 respectively, with new two year contract.
