Amazon drops Palm Pre price to $100 After weeks of rumors, the Palm Pre is finally under $100 USD, with Amazon dropping the price to $99.99 with 2-year contract, a $50 discount off Sprint's official price, after rebate.
Sprint had planned to offer $100 rebates but strangely pulled the deal within hours of starting the promotion. The company called the deal an "error."

Sprint spokesperson Mark Elliott added that retail partners can "set their own price for devices," but declined to say if Sprint would soon be matching the price.

The phone has a 3.1-inch touchscreen with 480x320 resolution and a slider design which hides a full QWERTY keyboard. More notably, the phone uses Palm's own WebOS Linux-based operating system, which offers multitasking for applications and "Synergy" for contacts integration.

The Pre is headed to the UK on October 16th.
