Verizon Wireless Pulls Pixi Plus From Online Store

It seems that the popularity of the recent price cut for the Verizon Palm Pixi Plus on prepaid was greater than anticipated for Verizon, because as of this morning, the sibling device to the Pre Plus is no longer available for purchase online in either prepaid or postpaid options.

The Pixi Plus was launched on Verizon last year as the sibling device to the Pre Plus with Wi-Fi radio and support for Verizon’s then new Mobile Hotspot option. We’ve even advised readers to purchase one as a backup.

One month after launch, Verizon began to consistently cut post-agreement pricing for the device to levels unheard of for a full featured smartphone, first to $79.99 after rebate in February of 2010, eliminated the mail in rebate for it and the Pre Plus in March, made a further price cut to $29.99 in a buy one, get one free promotion in April and included mobile hotspot access for both it and the Pre Plus.

The culmination of Pixi Plus pricing came last month as it began to sell the Pixi Plus on its realigned prepaid service for $79.99 and the $15 150MB data plan allowed for 5GB of tethering via previous agreement with Palm to offer Mobile Hotspot on its devices.

While the device is no longer sold online, possibly due to lack of enough stock to fill demand and close to being placed on end of life status, the phone can still be found for sale primarily through Verizon retail stores, third-party dealers and online sellers such as HP’s own Wireless Center .

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
