For the second time in just a couple of months, Palm, Inc. has cut the price of its flagship handheld.
In mid- 2005, when Palm introduced the first Mobile Manager, this device cost $500. In January, this price dropped to $450.
Today, the official cost for a LifeDrive was cut to $400.
This move is sure to spark speculation that Palm is going to introduce a replacement model soon. Spring is typically a time when this company refreshes its product line.
