I was just looking at the wholesale website for Computer2000 & I saw that they have just entered the Pre 3 as being available for order on 18 Jul 2011.
This will be the SIM free version. There is no pricing yet, but it looks like they will have just 250 in stock to order from that date.
Also you can see that the Pre 2 is available at only £104.81 + 20% VAT. Last week it was at £271 + 20% VAT.
See attached screen shot.
I will be getting mine so I can try the touch to share features. BTW, the Touchpad is brilliant.
