Palm Pre: $79.99 with contract, at Walmart

Over the weekend, uber-retailer Walmart announced that it is offering Palm's latest and greatest smartphone, the Palm Pre, for only $79.99 with a two-year agreement.

Well that was quick.

Over the weekend, EverythingPre took note that uber-retailer Walmart is offering Palm's latest and greatest smartphone, the Palm Pre, for only $79.99 with a two-year agreement on Sprint.

That deal comes by way of a $100 mail-in rebate, which is provided by Let's Talk, the organization that handles wireless sales for the retailer.

The deal comes right after Amazon posted the Pre for $99.99 with a two-year contract.

Are Palm and its partners gearing up to move units as we move toward the holidays? You bet.
