    Pre customers: Get your on-the-spot rebate at Best Buy Mobile

    You wait for months for the Palm Pre to show signs of life outside industry trade show videos and blog posts. Finally, you have the privilege of standing (or more like camping) in line all night, just to be one of the first to get your hands on the device when it launches June 6.

    After that ordeal, you want a reward, just for sheer perseverance. Sure, the phone’s its own reward, blah, blah, blah. But this is even better:

    How about getting that tasty tech for the cheapie $199 price — without having to suffer the wait for the mail-in rebate? If that waiting line is in front of Best Buy, you can.

    Best Buy Mobile announced that it will be selling Pres at the reduced, post-rebate amount of $199 at the point of sale. No forms to fill out, no more waiting for weeks or months, you just get your discount right away. That’s sweet. Now you can afford to blow that extra $70 for the awesome Touchstone charging station.

    Best Buy® Mobile Will Sell Palm Pre™ for Sprint in Stores Beginning June 6


    MINNEAPOLIS, May 19, 2009 – Best Buy Mobile, now in 1067 locations around the U.S. including standalone stores and stores-within-a-store at Best Buy will begin selling the Palm® Pre™ phone June 6. Without the hassle of mail-in rebates, Best Buy Mobile allows consumers to buy with instant rebate savings at the point of purchase.
    “The addition of the Palm Pre to our assortment gives consumers the opportunity to see all of the latest and greatest mobile phone technology under one roof,” said Best Buy Mobile President Shawn Score. “Our vast selection of smartphones allows customers to see which device is right for their individual needs. They can also check to see if they are eligible for an upgrade, no matter what carrier they’re currently using.”
    Best Buy Mobile has become a leading destination for smartphone purchases, in part because of what the store offers its customers:

    - Better choice of phones and networks
    Consumers can compare a wide selection of the top brands, the latest phones and all major networks. Best Buy Mobile features more than 90 different handsets across a variety of carriers.

    - Impartial, informed advice
    Mobile phone specialists, who are non-commissioned, help customers find the best mobile phones for individual or family needs.

    - Straightforward pricing
    Customers experience savings upfront with no mail-in rebates on the backend. The price customers see is the price they get.

    - There for the full life cycle of a phone
    Customers can choose from an array of service plans, phone repair options and helpful suggestions to get the most out of their mobile phones.
    Best Buy Mobile offers an array of services aimed at improving the mobile phone buying experience. Some of these services include:

    - Upgrade Checker: A quick and easy in-store service that gives consumers the ability to see when they are eligible for their next phone upgrade. When the upgrade time is nearing, consumers receive a complimentary reminder call or email.

    - Walk Out Working™: Free in-store smartphone setup by a Best Buy Mobile associate who will sync email accounts, set up BlueTooth® peripherals, transfer contacts and activate other services to allow the customer to leave the store with a fully functional new smartphone.
    The new Palm Pre developed by Palm, Inc. is the first phone based on the new Palm webOS™ mobile platform, which brings together all your important information from where it resides – on your phone, at your work or on the web – in to one logical view. It features a smooth, rounded ergonomic design and a physical keyboard that slides out only when needed. Pre is engineered to feel natural in a user’s hand and comfortably small in one’s pocket. When closed, Pre is ideal for phone calls, Web browsing, music, photos and videos; when open, Pre is optimized for email and text messaging. It promises exceptional experience for phone calls, whether held to your ear, over speakerphone or via Bluetooth. With its curved slider and gesture-controlled touch interface, Pre fuses exquisite design with the revolutionary webOS software for fast access to anything on the device or web.
