When Palm, inc. introduced the first Mobile Manager, this device cost $500. Today, this company has cut the price for this handheld by 10 percent, bringing it down to $450.
As the LifeDrive is a device that premiered over six months ago, it’s typical that its manufacturer would reduce the selling price. Still, today’s move is sure to spark speculation that Palm is going to introduce a replacement model.
While it’s undeniably true that this is going to happen at some point in the future, it isn’t likely to come about in the next few months.
In any case, those who are interested in picking up a LifeDrive should be aware that today’s change affects only the official price for this handheld; in the near future other retailers will surely be offering it for even less. As always, Shopper.com is a good place to find the best price for this device.
