One of our Verizon Wireless connects just handed us some pretty interesting info: starting tomorrow, Palm devices on Verizon Wireless will not require a mail-in-rebate.

Our source said that this is a pretty telltale sign of the devices not performing well on Big Red as, “we make a ton of money off people not sending those rebates in.” We’d agree. So, if this all pans out, starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to pick up a Palm Pre Plus or Palm Pixi Plus on Verizon for $149.99 and $79.99 respectively, with instant rebates out the door.
