The Pre Costs $542.01 Without Subsidies According to Fine Print

The meticulous folks at gadgetell dug through the contest rules of an upcoming Sprint-sponsored Palm Pre giveaway. And according to the fine print, the Pre is valued at $542.01 without subscription subsidies. Surely this fact was listed only for tax purposes, but it's interesting to note all the same because Pre buyers who back out of their Sprint plans will probably negotiate this mighty fee.

Wow... RIPOFF!!! I know it's a Palm Pre, and all, but $542.01?!? Yuck.
