The Canadian carrier has slashed the price on the Palm Pre to a much more affordable zero dollars and zero cents. Not one penny.

Apple's handset still reigns supreme, but that doesn't mean Palm and Sprint are going to run and hide in a corner. They're pushing out upgrades that'll make the Palm Pre even more enticing, so they hope.
