Ouch. We know that us Canadians pay a premium to have the latest mobile devices… but this is crazy! Yesterday we saw Future Shop promoting the in-store availability of the unreleased Palm Pre. Today they have put the Palm Pre as “This product is only available in-store” for a whopping $999.99! Could this be the outright price? Probably not as Bell has put a retail value of the Pre at $650.
Bell will officially release the Pre tomorrow across Canada, but we’ve heard that those who pre-ordered were able to pick up their device today. Time will tell and I’m sure pictures will follow.
No worries about this Future Shop price – it will drop down to the regular price of $599.99 on a 3-year in no time. We hope.
