Palm has announced that the Palm Pixi will be coming to Sprint on November 15 for $99.99. This was the expected price and not a surprise at all.
However, the expectation of a $100 price point was made back when the Palm Pre was going for $150-200. Currently you can purchase the Palm Pre from Wal-Mart, with Wi-Fi and a faster processor for $99.99.
I guess I don’t understand this decision.
Update 11/12/09: The Boy Genius has managed to (as usual) get some unboxing pictures of the Palm Pixi before its release. The device is packaged very similar to the iPhone, although I think the plastic tray it sits in looks a little chintzy.
Also, if you’re planning on purchasing a Palm Pixi, Walmart’s wireless partner, LetsTalk, has the Palm Pixi available for $29.99.
