CircuitCity.com Discounts Palm TX, E2 and Z22
In what may be a sign of new Palm PDAs around the corner or just an attempt to clear out excess inventory, CircuitCity.com has the Palm TX and E2 handhelds on sale as web-only specials through January 27th 2007.
The Palm TX, featuring wi-fi, Bluetooth, 128mb of RAM, and a 320x480 screen is $224.99 after a $75 mail-in rebate.
The Palm Tungsten E2, in its rebranded "Bonus Pak" version, is $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. The Circuit City-exclusive E2 Bonus Pak version offers a brown leather carrying case and Astraware's Sudoku game on CD, making this bundle quite a decent value for the money. The Palm E2's standard features include Bluetooth wireless, a 320x320 color screen, and 32mb of RAM.
Finally, Palm's entry-level Z22 handheld, offering a 160x160 DSTN color screen and 32mb of RAM, is $74.99 after a $25 mail-in rebate. This unit is commonly available from a variety of e-tailers for <$100 prices, so this offer is not as appealing as the two higher-end Palm devices.
While these offers are not valid in Circuit City's brick and mortar retail stores, www.circuitcity.com does offer free shipping on these items. Based on my past experiences, Circuit City also has a fairly strong extended warranty, which might not be a bad idea given the issues some users have experienced with recent Palm products.
