It's getting pretty hard to compete with Android, the hottest mobile OS on the planet that seems to be wedging itself into nearly every new smartphone announcement. Would a price cut and two-for-one offer be enough to sway you towards WebOS?
Verizon Wireless will soon find out who, after slashing the prices on their Palm phones, is now offering a buy-one-get-one free special. You can now pick up a pair of Palm Pre Plus smartphones for $50, or two Palm Pixi Plus handests for $30. That becomes pretty compelling with phones like Google's Nexus One selling for $529.
If that weren't enough, Verizon also dropped the price tag altogether on its 3G Mobile Hotspot feature for the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. This used to be a $40 service, but now it won't cost you a dime to connect your smartphone's 3G Internet connection with up to five other Wi-Fi devices, like your laptop or iPad.
Two year contract and monthly data plans both apply, but this is a heck of a deal if you've been eying the Palm's WebOS phones.
