    Not sure whether they do have any, but it might be worth a punt.

    I was obviously too late. Here is the e-mail I just received:-

    Thank you for ordering with e-ShopBrokers. Unfortunately, the product you have ordered has been discontinued by the manufacturer and no more stock is due to arrive. Because of this, the order has been cancelled and the payment aborted.

    A limited number of units were available yesterday evening but these small quantities had sold out before the order was placed. To avoid any further confusion, the product has also been removed from our website. As a gesture of goodwill, if you wish to place an order again we are willing to provide next day delivery free of charge.

    If you are interested in any other smartphones we have stock, please see the link below:

    I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact.


    Kind Regards,
    Toby

    Very sad.

    So Glad I pulled the trigger 2 days ago and bought through Handtec.... ;-)

    I knew the chances of me getting one in time when the sale started would be low and in fact, I apparently missed it.

    Having owned both of these I shall weigh in with my opinion.

    iPhone 4.
    +
    Screen is amazing. I found it hard to see the pixels, however blacks are not as dark as Super AMOLED+.
    Beautiful hardware, feels great, compact design.
    iOS is, in my opinion, on a par, if not slightly better than WebOS, looks wise/ease of use/speed.
    Camera is brilliant, much better than anything else I have used on a phone.
    I use a Mac and have never had problems getting any content on to it. There is a massive multitude of apps for everything, I still have over 500 on my computer just in case I go back.

    -
    Screen size was a little constricting. Had they used the retina display to allow for more to be shown instead of things looking nicer I may never have looked else where.
    The non-existant antenna issue that demands a case.

    Samsung Galaxy S2
    +
    Screen, yes you can see the pixels, but it looks lovely so it won't bother too much.
    Scree is massive, you really get a great viewing experience on anything.
    Android can do pretty much anything you want. Seriously. Download anything, watch anything, listen to anything.
    Specs=Speed. In this case anyway. Dual-core and 1GB RAM really help, as do the Samsung optimisations of the OS.
    Battery life. Amazing for what it has inside it.
    Video recording at 1080p.

    -
    Overall size, while slim, is pretty large. Not a major problem, but does cause issues when holding at funny angles.
    Samsung touching the OS. I had a Nexus S and much prefer the simpler 'Vanilla' Android experience.
    Camera, for an 8mp camera it sucks. CMOS sensors in phones aren't great, I know this, but Apple wins here.

    Also of note, the iPhone 5 should be just around the corner, making iPhone 4 cheaper, this is as with all Apple rumours supposedly amazing. I would wait until then if you can.

    has anyone actually bought one at the reduced prices yet and had shipping details? because all i see atm is so called reductions but everyone buying at the high price and praying for the reduced price later?

    i dont actually SEE a real firesale of anything, see plenty of "will be selling cheap" and virtually zero "are selling cheap".

    Below is the email I received from palm store where I bought my Pre 3

    Dear Customer,


    Thank you for contacting the Palm Store Customer Service.


    Please be advised that HP have not taken any decision and have not
    confirmed the price reduction information yet.
    No update is expected from HP before Friday 26th and it is not certain if
    the decision to release stock and new prices will happen by then.

    Please note that webstore pages will be updated with the newest
    information immediately upon release.

    Unfortunately Customer Support Representatives within HP Palm EuroStore
    have no further update on the situation and they will not be able to
    provide you with any more details than the information available on the
    Select Your Language : Palm Store EMEA.

    At this stage as Luzern Technology Solutions is a third party company
    running the Palm Euro Shop on behalf on HP/ Palm only, we will not be able
    to answer your query at present.

    For further details on current situation you can contact HP directly
    through the following site, which allows you to send a mail to the head of
    HP in the UK and Ireland.

    HP - United Kingdom | OTHER QUESTIONS / FEEDBACK

    Alternatively you can call 020 7853 2200 from the UK

    All your questions will be answered from their end.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter!



    The Palm Store Customer Service thanks you for the opportunity to assist
    you and hopes to have been of assistance.

    Kind Regards,

    Palm Store Customer Service Representative

    Hello,

    I have been reading that you will be reducing the price of the pre3 that
    I
    bought less than a week ago by a significant amount.

    If this is true, will I be refunded the difference?

    Thanks

    Even if you could still get one from either country - BEWARE:
    France = AZERTY
    Germany = QWERTZ
    These different keyboard layouts will definitely impact your experience is you expect a QWERTY one ...

    I think you're mistaken, in France they're certainly not selling the Pre at that price, they're in the same situation as the UK, all awaiting news from HP, they did have a huge firesale on the tablet though.

    has anyone actually bought one at the reduced prices yet and had shipping details? because all i see atm is so called reductions but everyone buying at the high price and praying for the reduced price later?
    Well pointed out, "praying" being the operative word there ;p

    No impact whatsoever, I bought my Pre in '09 in Germany, got a qwertz keyboard but couldn't care less, would care even less if I could save 300 if bought at firesale..
    Was sucked into Palm when I bought the glorious Treo650, somehow subsequent phones didn't live up to expectations.
