Resisting pressure from AT&T
, Sprint had stubbornly held out and refused to significantly lower pricing on its aging Palm Pre and Pixi -- despite the fact that they're not even the Plus versions offered by the other guys. Well, that finally changed a few days ago: you can now score a Pre for $50 and a Pixi for a nice, fat zilch on a new two-year contract after rebate (the Pre's deal will require a $100 mail-in, unfortunately). With webOS 2.0
hardware presumably around the corner, buying any of this stuff might be a tricky proposition at the moment -- but then again, it's always hard to resist a free smartphone, isn't it?
