Verizon slash Palm Pre Plus to $30

The slow scything away at the Palm Pre Plus' price continues, with Verizon pushing the webOS smartphone through a second bout of cost cuts that see it down to just $29.99 with a new, two-year contract.  The cut follows an earlier discount, made last month, which saw the Pre Plus down to $49.99.

In fact, this new price brings the Pre Plus down to the same as the Palm Pixi Plus on Verizon.  That's despite it having more memory and a bigger display; both handsets also come with free mobile hotspot use, which turns them into a MiFi-style portable router ideal for use with your iPad.
