It looks like Verizon may be trying to make the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus a little more appealing. We have been seeing the price come down over the past few weeks with various third party retailers, and even on sale a few times with Verizon directly. But this deal is a little different from the rest. The pricing of the phones seem to have remained the same at $149.99 and $79.99 for the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus respectively, however the price of the Mobile Hotspot add on service has been lowered. And by lowered I mean it has been slashed, all the way from $40 to $0.
Of course, yes its April Fools day and we should not believe anything we see online. That is why I have included two screenshots (see below). Otherwise, PreCentral is reporting that Verizon has also lowered the pricing of the phones to $49.99 and $29.99. That said, I cannot see, nor verify those prices. [Update] The Verizon website has now confirmed $49.99 and $29.99 pricing on the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. Price drop is official.
