According to a tipster reporting to PhoneArena, Verizon plans to match Sprint's pricing on their upcoming Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus devices. Using today's Sprint pricing, that would make the Palm Pre Plus $149.99, and the Palm Pixi Plus $99.99 (both prices are after a mail-in rebate, which I'm sure Verizon will implement as well). Though the devices look similar, numerous improvements can be found in the "Plus" versions. For more information on the differences between the Plus models and the original units, see my CES post.
The real excitement comes in the potential for a BOGO offer. Previously reserved for BlackBerry devices, and as of late, the DROID/Droid Eris duo, a BOGO offering would be a great sales boost for Palm, and the start of a beautiful relationship with America's largest wireless carrier. Obviously, this is all a rumor at the moment, but given the brother/sister nature of the Pre Plus/Pixi Plus, I can see both of these rumors coming to fruition.
We'll find out on January 25th. I'm curious - is anyone holding out for Verizon's version of the webOS devices, or has everyone already "defaulted" to Sprint, since they've had a six month head start?
