Palm Pre Free in UK with contract

The past week or so we’ve seen Amazon offer the Palm Pre at $99 and Walmart get into cost cutting action at $79.99 promotional price (after a $100 rebate). In Canada, Best Buy dropped the price to $149.99. Those across the pond will get a better deal than all of these. O2, the exclusive carrier of the Palm Pre in Europe, will offer the Pre for free with a two-year contract starting on October 16th.


O2 currently offers the iPhone 3GS for free, so it only makes sense to offer this subsidy out of the gate to keep the Pre competitive. In Germany, customers will pay $73, which is still less than the current US price.
