Rumor Mill: Palm priced steeply at $399

After Palm’s CES keynote yesterday we were left with a new device and a matching shiny new operating system, but two big selling points were left out of the equation: pricing and timing. We know Palm signed the dotted line and made it official with Sprint (much to our dismay) and we expected the Palm Pre to be competitively priced to fall in line with the iPhone 3G. According to Mobile-Review’s sources, the Pre will launch with a heavy price tag of $399! Say it isn’t so! I sure hope they are wrong, otherwise I say the carrier and price tag will be the cannonball that sinks Palm’s ship-of-hope to the ocean floor! Stay tuned!
