Starting today, Verizon Wireless is running a promotion on both the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. The Pre Plus is being offered for just $50, and users can get one for free if they buy one. The Pixi Plus is being offered for $30, also with a buy-one get-one free option. Verizon also said that it will be giving away the Mobile HotSpot application for both phones for free. The software, which allows the Pixi Plus and Pre Plus to act as mobile hotspots, was always free to download, but Verizon has agreed to nix the $20 monthly charge to use it. Users who have already downloaded the application will see a $0 charge for it on their next bill. Verizon didn't say how long the promotions will last.

The Promo Worked...

got one for my wife last nite. Deal IS real. Mobile Hot Spot is free for 2yrs, app is free to DL and use, Pre was $50 w/ a free one if we had another upgrade available which we did not.

So far she loves the phone and I am diggin it more than my modded and apped out Storm 1. Plus I got free wifi for the family if needed.

I agree it has 1 or 2 mildly feminine qualities(mirror, color schemes) but I would NOT call it a ladies phone!

mobile hotspot free for short time

this is a $40 Broadband Connect Service via WIFI(tethering) which is free for new palm pre plus or pixi, get it now before the promo disappears Very Happy
Promo?! This had better be permanent. I'm already wondering why the Mobile Broadband Connect feature is not free on all smartphones. After all...it is the same 5GB cap. This also makes me hopeful that they will go ahead and release the Saygus Vpho...

April fools...

i saw the news clips. first thought was, they couldn't have picked a better looking phone for the ladies? that thing is hideous Laughing
I must admit that they really had me for a moment. I was like, "VANITY MIRROR?! WHAT?!" XD
My first thought was "That is fugly... but I bet it'll sell like hotcakes"

Just seeing the demand for purple, red, etc Blackberry's... ick.
