Nothing like the announcement
of a new webOS
device to spur a price drop on the first, is there? The Palm Pre
-- which has held steady at the $199.99 on-contract price it launched at back in June
-- has finally taken a rumored
$50 dip down to $149.99. That figure includes a $150 instant rebate plus a $100 mail-in rebate, which means you'll actually be paying $249.99 in-store to walk out with a unit -- but considering that the Pixi's only signed up for a vague pre-holiday launch window without pricing details, the Pre's still the cheapest webOS device available (of course, it's also the most expensive).
