UPDATE – 12/13 Just another reason to be Thankful this holiday season: 5% off PDAs atDell.com! Want more? Fine. Today (12/13) is the last day for free shipping and you can take another $25 with coupon code: DC6C3A014759. I just bought the Clie S320 for a Christmas present (no, not for myself) for only $136.69 with free shipping in time for Christmas. Great deals to be had but this offer will not last long. Get it while you can! UPDATE – 12/10 Turns out handspring dropped their prices on the Edge by $50, to $249. You can still do better at iGO.com, although Handspring has free shipping and a free gift worth a few bucks. UPDATE – 12/8 Handspring will be the next to go, they are rumored to be dropping the Edge prices this weekend by at least $20. However, iGO.com is already selling the Edge for only $229! So don’t wait around, pick it up now! UPDATE – 12/7 First Palm, seconds later Sony, and now Compaq. In the latest holiday promotion to hit the handheld market, Compaq Computer plans to offer a $50 rebate on one of its newest iPaqs. In the latest holiday promotion to hit the handheld market, Compaq Computer plans to offer a $50 rebate on one of its newest iPaqs. The move affects Compaq’s H3765 model, which uses the same hardware as Compaq’s last-generation iPaq but includes the new Pocket PC 2002 operating system introduced by Microsoft in October. With the rebate, the unit now sells for $449. The move is the first discount for a handheld running Pocket PC 2002, but is the latest in a series of price drops in the handheld market. The offer starts Sunday and runs through March 30. Moments after Palm announces a price cut on the m125, Sony slashes the 760C by $50. Right now, ecost is even selling it for $409! With a number of 10% off discounts, free shipping, coupon and rebate offers, this season should lead to a frenzy of PDA purchasing. Will it lead to profitability for the device manufacturers? Likely not, but as long as you get a good deal, do you really care? We’ll keep you posted on all the latest and greatest sales, discounts and deals. Brian
