palmOne has dropped the prices it is charging in the United States for two of its older models.
The Zire 31 was palmOne’s first entry-level model with a color screen and a built-in SD card slot.
When it debuted a year ago, it sold for $149. This device has just had its first price drop, to $129.
This move appears to have caught many retailers off guard. Shopper.com shows that many stores are still selling this handheld for the original price.

Since palmOne has already introduced the Treo 650, it’s no surprise that the Treo 600 should be getting a price cut.
This smartphone is now going for as little as $299, with a service contract.
Its successor, which offers a better screen, removeable battery, and Bluetooth, sells for $450.
Both of these products can be ordered from the palmOne web site.
