You wait for months for the Palm Pre to show signs of life outside industry trade show videos and blog posts. Finally, you have the privilege of standing (or more like camping) in line all night, just to be one of the first to get your hands on the device when it launches June 6.
After that ordeal, you want a reward, just for sheer perseverance. Sure, the phone's its own reward, blah, blah, blah. But this is even better:
How about getting that tasty tech for the cheapie $199 price ? without having to suffer the wait for the mail-in rebate? If that waiting line is in front of Best Buy, you can.
Best Buy Mobile announced that it will be selling Pres at the reduced, post-rebate amount of $199 at the point of sale. No forms to fill out, no more waiting for weeks or months, you just get your discount right away. That's sweet. Now you can afford to blow that extra $70 for the awesome Touchstone charging station.
