Amazon, Wal-Mart Sell Pre for $99.99 and $79.99

Over the weekend, both Amazon and Wal-Mart started offering the Palm Pre for $99.99 and $79.99, respectively. While this may or may not have something to do with the possibility of the Pre coming to Verizon (to be honest, I missed all that because I was busy being charged hundreds of Euro to have my dentist keep three of my molars), it's still a pretty sweet deal for those of you who plan to stay on Sprint but don't feel like paying a ridiculous amount of money for a smartphone.

However, it does make for rather confusing news when you consider that Palm will soon offer the Pixi, a sort of stripped down Pre that comes in the form of a neat, little candybar phone. Given that the Pixi was announced just after the Pre's price was cut from $199 to $149, many assumed that the Pixi would be in or around the hundred-buck mark.

How many of you are tempted to buy a Pre now that it's so cheap? Granted they still come with a 2-year contract but it's a steal for those of you already tied to Sprint for one reason or another.
