Canadians Can Get the Palm Pre for the price of free

Our friends up north can now purchase the Palm Pre for the price of free. We’ve seen prices in the sub-$30 area, but it’s finally hit a price all can agree is the best you’ll find. Wireless Wave is offering the Palm Pre for free. Of course, you’ll have to commit to a 3-year deal with Bell, but you can’t argue with the price.

Bell Drops Price of Palm Pre to $99.95

According to Mobile Syrup, Bell has dropped the price of the Palm Pre to $99.95. This subsidized price still requires a 3-year commitment. The move likely comes in response to Bell not carrying the 8GB iPhone 3G, priced at $99.


Those looking for a similar price in the US should check out Amazon, with Sprint still holding at $149.99. With the Palm Pixi coming out on November 15th priced at $99, price is helping to differentiate the products. The more expensive Palm Pre includes WiFi and features a faster processor.

Best Buy Canada Drops Price on Bell Palm Pre

Best Buy in Canada has dropped the price on the Palm Pre to $149.99 with a new 3-year agreement. Bell, the exclusive carrier in Canada, launched the Palm Pre on August 27th at a price of $199.99. While the new Best Buy price is the same as pricing in the US, it might draw the ire of early adopters who have seen a price drop less than a month after the release.


Bell has not changed their pricing. So if you’re up north and looking to pick up a Palm Pre, Best Buy is your best bet.
