I placed an order for two Pre3s from KICKMOBILE this morning (in the UK I think, I bought via eBay I did not come across their site when doing searches for who was selling the Pre3), and while they are out of stock right now they sent me this encouraging email a few minutes ago.
The ebay auction I bought from is no longer on the ebay site.
I'm holding out hope, even if it's costing me $1200 for the pair of phones. I'd love a discounted phone but at this point I just want the phone! I won't, for various reasons go near an Apple, MS or Android phone (yeah I know I'm crazy).
Thanks for the follow up. We had 30 units physical and they were sold out before your order. (see the attached picture) We had 25 units to be delivered to us today, but that supplier let us down. But, the good news is we are in the process of closing a deal with our regular supplier for 100 units of HP Pre 3 and this will be finalized tomorrow. If you could give us time by tomorrow we will confirm to you YES we done it or we could not do it. If we done it, we will send it and stocks will be with us Saturday morning. If we fail on it, we will always give you full refund and no problem.
As you know, there is no one who had physical stocks, only we had physical stocks and due to high demand customers around the world had bought quickly and we were felt short of stocks. But, we are positive as our supplier currently has physically 1500 pcs HP Pre 3 in hand. We are discussing with their MD for 100 pcs order, where you will have 1st unit of that allocated to you.
Due to above, we have made out of stock our online sales channels, soon tomorrow decision is made, we will put them back in stock and notify you that we will be able to fulfill your pending unit order.
