    This is a "nice-to-have" rather than a "must-have".
    Good point actually. The Pre 2 is quite sufficient as a sidekick to the tPad. Touch to Share ain't that important/interesting unless it's functionality is widely expanded.

    Next Update:
    Customers who have an existing order with us will be contacted directly by our customer service team on Friday 26th in relation to the status of their order. We will contact you - please can we ask you to be patient and await contact by us. Please do not ring or email us as this will only further delay the process. Timing of contact will not in any way affect the status of your order.

    We, at Palm Eurostore, are continuing to pursue all options to try to obtain Pre3 product. We do not, however, expect to have any further information in this respect before Wed 31st Aug. Any new information will appear here first.

    Customer Service staff will not have any further information - it will be communicated directly here on this page. Thank you for your continued patience.
    Bah, this is slowly getting worse...It looks like they expected preferential treatment from HP in regards to stock which hasn't been forthcoming in light of their CPW deal (if there has indeed been one).

    I expect them to increase the bundle price significantly from the initial 120 in an attempt to get people to cancel so their existing stock will be sufficient to cover everybody who still wants one.

    Thanks to NatePre and Raven3k, I've gone the ebay.co.uk/KickMobiles route. Let's hope!

    I don't think I could get their supplier info, even if we did have it I don't think it would be useful because those suppliers usually don't sell to end users. The person that has been emailing me has been very friendly and supportive so I don't want to push too hard

    I'll send an update if when I get any news...

    You know, I bought, but I'm really hoping this proves out. Gotta say I'm a bit skeptical. The price is quite cheap compared to anything else we've seen, right? (Aside from fire-sale rumors of course.) I don't know. Just felt a bit off. Hope I'm wrong.

    latest update from kickmobile (probably last I'll hear till tomorrow)

    We have already done the deal with the supplier, but their MD has to authorize.

    We have to buy also blackberry 8520 200 units from them to get the pre 3's. All these agreed by this evening and final sing off should come from the MD of the supplier, since we assisting them to get ride of their unsealing obsolete stocks, the should go through without an issue.

    As a couple of others have already pointed out (and been overlooked, apparently) that's the original Pre. That's a Pre 1, not a Pre 3. Please do not buy it if you want a Pre 3.

    This is the link for the Pre 3; it's 299:

    I was only going to pick a Pre 3 up if it was around 100, a firesale price. 199 is hardly a big reduction to get rid of a device that is no longer in production. I reckon those b*stards are just trying to make the most money as possible out of this.

    To be fair, a business trying to make money isn't a bad thing. The bad thing here is the run around HP seems to be giving everybody from suppliers down to consumers. Either have a sale or don't, don't mess everybody about.

    The TouchPad firesale was incredible with huge demand. They are taking too long with the Pre 3 firesale (if it will ever happen) that I think people will slowly loose interest in picking up a cheap Pre 3.

    It's starting to become clearer that there wont be a Pre 3 fire sale. The intense rumours aren't all HPs fault, but they did nothing to stop them - and indeed, sounds like the rumours would have been true if it weren't for a last minute change of heart.

    Thats prolly a good thing given what happened with the tp sale.

    Anyhoo I think 200 is a pretty good deal. 300 was good before hps announcement, and thats a reasonable drop given the news. Besides there's something stinky going on with the 'firesale' if you ask me.

    I think your wrong, Pre 3's are going to sell out fast!

    and 199 is still a great price, they are not obliged to firesell it, and why would they if they don't have to?

    Ah well. originally I was hoping for a pre 3 or a touchpad (at full price) before the debacle.
    The touchpad didn't work for me and I just wanted to see how the pre 3 felt before I bought it. However my search in carphone warehouse showed no dummy/display. so I thought I would wait to get one at a decent reduction without "laying on" hands but as that isnt likely I am off to get a Samsung Galaxy S2 tomorrow.

    Sad day as I have had palms since the Palm pilot.

    I will keep an eye out here.

    Paul
