from phonedog.net they stated http://www.phonedog.net/ :
"While we continue to wait for new webOS hardware from HP/Palm, the Palm Pre continues to get cheaper. AT&T has dropped the price of the original webOS phone to just $99.99, although the device is currently out of stock on the carrier's website. "
I had a collegue just buy one, at a store and told me a HP rep was there as well pushing the phones to people in the store. It seems HP isnt playing when they said double down on palm huh.
