Get Free m105 with an m500
Palm Inc. is now offering a free Palm m105 with the purchase of an m500. The m500 must be purchased between today and July 8.
Palm said last week that demand for its handhelds this spring has been weaker than expected. Sales and rebates like this one are classic methods for spurring sales, especially now when many Father's Day and graduation gifts are being bought.
The m500 is a mid-range monochrome model with 8 MB of RAM. It sells for $300. The m105 is Palm's current low-end model, selling for $150. It also has 8 MB of memory and a monochrome screen.
Both of these products are more than a year old and it is possible Palm is using this promotion to reduce its inventory of them before discontinuing them, though this would leave the company without a low-end handheld.
The m500 can be bought from a retail store, online, or from Palm itself. The receipt , proof of purchase, and a rebate form need to be sent to Palm before August 8. Palm will ship the m105 within 8-10 weeks. This offer is good only in the United States and Canada.
