Palm is offering a $50 Rebate/Trade Up for those who purchase a Palm Zire 71, Tungsten T, Tungsten W, or Tungsten C. While Palm still has the lead over the Pocket PC based devices, Palm wants to convince users of older Palm platform (as well as Pocket PC) platform to move toward these new devices.

Many continue to ask what they can do with their old Palm units and other than selling them on Ebay, this is a great offer if you are looking to upgrade. The $50 that you receive in this offer is far more than you can fetch from Ebay on some of the older units. Not a bad deal all in all if you ask us.
