    Hi All,

    Pre 3 arrived today (i'm at work ) but when I get home tonight I will post pictures comparing the Pre 3 to my Pre 2 as I noticed a lot of people asking for them... Watch this space!

    Update Pre 2 is like a little chubby thing compared to the Pre 3, though there is not a lot in it, the Pre 3 just feels thinner

    This puppy is a keeper regardless of price

    PS how do I update the thread title?? lol

    I try not to live my life with regrets I COULD keep it boxed as I have 7 working Days to return it. But I bought the TP full price and even at 300 for a new smartphone it was a good deal

    Agree that 300 is a pretty good price for a smartphone but i gotta admit i ordered mine on thursday morning and come thursday evening read the announcements from HP and my heart jumped up into my throat, but now i have a Pre3 i love it and am definitely going to keep it!
    (Although if they appear for 99 or something in the coming days i guess i would be a little grumpy)

    I think people (in the UK) need to just be brave and buy the Pre3 at 300 and just hope that they get refunded if the price drops, Rather than waiting for them to go on sale and then finding that there are not any left! The more i read the more i get the impression that HP were just testing the water with the UK "soft lunch" and im guessing that not many retail units exist!

    i think you might be right, @Scotty_Dogg. i want one and i'm considering paying 300 for it to avoid missing out. bit annoying that it's discounted in germany already and not here. i will be hitting refresh all night and if it doesn't get discounted in the UK tomorrow then i think i'll just buy it.

    That sounds like a plan Plus i have just read that HP Germany is already all sold out of Veer's and Pre3's!!!

    Camera is OK, quite noisy autofocus on my Pre 3, sounds Like I have crickets in the phone lol

    Not the best not the worst camera I have had on a phone, best being the N8 that was a freakin beast! I would say average imo.

    However the new keyboard is well ahead on the Pre 2, as it is slightly larger and more errr clicky I prefer it and can see my typing speed definately being quicker.

    Buy both if you can afford, love Pre 3 and the TP, depends what you need the most? Flip a coin if you want both equally as much then go with what fate decides!

    Articles have said that it will happen "shortly" but where did you hear that it might happen tomorrow?

    Ah that explains it, I could just make out the outline of a 'smaller than the screen size' screen protector of some sort. Thanks.
