Sony is now offering a $50 mail-in rebate on four of its high-end Clie handhelds. The models included in this rebate plan are the Clie UX50, UX40, NX80V, and NX73V.
Sony dropped the prices for its UX series just last week. With these rebates, the UX50 is now available for $600 and the UX40 is $500. The rebates bring the cost of the NX80V to $500, while the NX73V is just $400.
Of course, these are just the official prices and all these models can be found for substantially less. For example, Shopper.com lists a store offering the UX50 for as low as $544, while the UX40 can be found for as low as $449. (View Shopper.com’s listings for the UX50 and UX40)
Clies purchased from any store before January 3, 2004 qualify for the rebate. Customers need to visit SonyStyle to download the rebate form.
All of these models run Palm OS 5 and include hi-res+ screens, but otherwise the UX series and the NX series have very different specifications.
