    The lower the better.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    That price is extremely low. A TCO of under £370 including a data contract over 2 years is very good. T-Mobile (or HP) are pricing the Pre 3 to compete with the mid-range Blackberrys and less than even the low end Androids. Seems like a sound strategy to me.

    Also leaves loads of space to launch another device at a higher price with a shoutier set of specs.

    EDIT
    having looked again, the cheapest tariff I can find with the phone for free gives a TCO of around £380 but with a cashback deal. Still excellent indeed.

    This is still a giant failure in my book. I want a phone that is bar none that can stand up to the best Android and iPhones alike. Hardware is now out dated. It will be released WAAY to late! Then again free is tempting. Not enough from me to eve think about trading in my Evo 3D. Its sad because I love WebOS!

    I hope the slab phone is a lot better on the hardware end of things. If HTC can do it then so can HP yes?
    SGIII SOON! (ATT)

    Palm Pre- > HTC EVO 3D > HTC One X > Samsung GSIII

    If any of my posts help you please thank me!!

    I hope it's free when it launches in the U.S. We're still waiting to see who is going to carry it but FREE would be a great way to get the phone in the hands of a lot of new customers and allow HP to introduce webOS to a lot of new people. Once they see how great webOS is then they would be more likely to buy a TouchPad too.

    I still think they should put a webos phone on pre-paid carriers...I would love to dump Sprint and go to Virgin. So much cheaper. It would definitely be a hit for the smartphone-starved pre-pd folks out there. They need optios other than Android...

    I'm still torn between el cheapo Veer (280 Euros in Germany incl. VAT) or the Pre3. Somehow, I don't want to pay more than 300 Euros for my next smartphone, especially since they're outdated fast...

    I'll settle for 49.99 on contract. That's what most mid-range phones go for.

    If they decide to go for what the Pre was asking for again (199 on contract), I'll report them to the authorities because they must be smoking something really good.

    I haven't looked at the figures but if this is right (and the prices aren't changed later) I hope the handset-only prices are revised.

    I took out a SIM-only contract on Tesco Mobile as there was a good deal and it uses o2's signal. I'll be annoyed if the price of my phone alone is more expensive than these contracts!
