The Palm Pre Plus will be available on AT&T this Sunday, priced at $149.99 (with standard 2-year agreement and a $100 debit card). That left us scratching our head as to when it’s partner, the Palm Pixi Plus would be released. These two normally release as a pair, but the Palm Pixi Plus was noticeably missing from the social network announcement. Now comes word from EngadgetMobile, who tells us to expect the Palm Pixi Plus on June 6th. It will be priced at $49.99 after rebate.
We’re just going to say it. $150 out the door with a $100 MIR debit card isn’t going to help their efforts move phones when they have to compete against a $99 iPhone 3G, $199 iPhone 3GS or the forthcoming yet-to-be announced iPhone HD. Not to mention, you can pick up a Verizon Palm Pixi Plus for free and that comes with a free mobile hotspot. Nothing is official yet, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear from Palm, AT&T or their respective Facebook walls.
