If Palm and Sprint need the Pre to be a big hit to survive, then why price it higher than your main competition, the iPhone and the Blackberry?
Palm has said they're looking for the middle spot of the market, to me that says $200 after rebates.
Now, as a $30 SERO sub, if Sprint tries to get me to ditch it for the $100 SE plan, I will keep my 700p or buy a cheap 755p on eBay.
I don't need GPS, just 3G data, voice and text.
This is an awesome device, I hope Sprint and Palm don't get cocky and forget what financial situations they are currently in and what is going on with the economy.
Sell it at a fair price and let existing subs keep their plans.
