Just as we'd heard earlier this morning
, today's the day that Palm and Sprint come clean with their undercover plans for the former's second-ever webOS device. The Pixi
, which we toyed with back on our first Engadget Show
, is slated to hit Sprint stores, Best Buy, RadioShack and select Walmart locations on November 15th for $99.99, but that's after a $50 instant rebate and a $100 mail-in rebate that you'll be waiting ages for. Nothing here is all that surprising -- after all, we knew
it'd be on shelves before the holiday season -- but the $100 price point is downright depressing. The Palm Pre can be had right now for just $150
(also on contract), and beyond that, both webOS devices are being offered on the exact same network. Throw this thing on Verizon, AT&T
or T-Mobile, and you've got a whole new wave of Palm customers; as it stands, who's really buying this with the Pre just $50 away?
