Umm... this "fire sale" did not happen suddenly, nor did it happen in the wake of the HP merger. Pre Plus was already selling for $49.99 Buy One Get One Free when the deal hit.
One thing's for sure: with the free mobile hotspot, the Pre Plus is a downright steal on Verizon. Anyone on the fence because of Palm's uncertain future can rest easy now. After HP scooped them up, webOS is here to stay.
$29 is around 42 percent off of $49.99. That's a pretty significant savings, and deserving of a "fire sale" designation.
LOL, okay... fire sale it is, then.
I don't get the fire sale thing, either. My DH and I scooped up the Palm Pixi Plus at Verizon April 6, pretty much a month before this hit. While a drop on the Pre from $49 to $29 is pretty significant, the difference from the original price -- not so much. The contract is what pays for them anyway.
