Devastating rumor puts Sprint's Palm Pre at $399 at launch


What’s the quickest way to kill any momentum you might have built up in the past 24 hours, Palm? How about pricing the Pre at $399, as this rumor currently zipping around the Internet suggests?

A Russian, who is apparently Mr. Credible for having reported on the death of the RAZR 3, says that Palm will price the Pre at $399 when it launches on Sprint in a few months. That’s $100 $200 more than the 8GB iPhone 3G (and the same price $100 more than the 16GB iPhone 3G).

Palm would be wise not to price the Pre out of the reach of the average consumer, especially with so many of them now watching the family budget so closely.
