I am not familiar with the Palm Pre nor the cell phone service of Sprint, but seeing that Walmart has the Palm on sale for $79.99 seems like a deal. There is a two year commitment with Sprint ranging from $69.99 to $99.99 a month. According to the blurb on the Walmart states the following information:

The Palm Pre is finally here! With Innovative features and a revolutionary webOS, this is the phone to have.

The Palm Pre comes to you with many unique features such as a full 3.1 inch touchscreen display and sliding QWERTY Keyboard. It is designed to have the natural feel of a small device in your hand with all the capabilities of a big, bulky, laptop like device. With the Gesture Area, you can navigate through the Palm WebOS using special touch gestures that you choose. And, with all the talk of the Palm webOS, what is it? Well, this is the first mobile platform which brings your information from the many places it resides, on your phone, at your work, or on the web, into one simple, integrated view.

The Palm Pre has many other innovative features like combined messaging which allows you to check your Outlook email with Microsoft Direct Push Technology and HTML support and get wireless email access to popular commercial POP3 and IMAP accounts like AOL, Gmail, and Yahoo! All your email accounts can be viewed together, or separately from one simple application. Synergy even lets you see IM presence directly from an email. And, with Universal Search, you can search your entire phone from one simple screen. You can search your contacts, applications, Google, Google Maps or even Wikipedia. Universal search narrows down the possible results as you type, so it’s easier to find what you need.

The Web Browser on the Palm Pre is also incredibly fast and brings you full HTML Websites the way they were meant to be seen. And, with Sprints EVDO Rev. A network speed or the ability to use a Wi-Fi network, you can view them lighting fast.

So what do you think? Is this a deal or no deal?  Share your thoughts.
