    Stumbled across this article in an email alert from Google:

    Hp denies pre 3 stock to online retailers- The Inquirer

    "ONLINE RETAILERS are struggling to get HP Pre 3 stock and it looks likely that the manufacturer will only sell the WebOS handset directly tomorrow morning."

    So do we actually have a chance to buy one directly from HP???

    If you try and access the pre 3 page (hp.com) it takes you to the laptop page. So, the only direct source is palm eurostore.

    I do trust the inquirer though.

    From Palm Eurostore, if the article is correct. Their link to HP Store is Palm Eurostore

    I'm not sure what to make of that line in the Inquirer. It could be interpreted different ways. Are they saying that online retailers can buy more directly from HP tomorrow or ANYONE can buy directly from HP? Not sure...

    edit: found the page, thx

    Nope. It's a discontinued product.

    thanks for the article link.

    doesn't seem to have any new information though- it's observing that 3rd party retailers can't get their hands on it so far, which is what handtec, clove and the like are reporting to us (and good on them for keeping us in the loop on what they know).

    it seems nobody has any news and we're all waiting to see what the UK palm eurostore says in the morning (10am GMT).

    I suspect nothing... Friday 10am was a way of saying 'we won't know for several days realistically, so get off our backs for a little while please.

    It'll look good on the department if they can cut down their losses?

    Considering the warehouses of money they burned through with the TouchPad's firesale, I'm not sure they're concerned with cutting down their losses as much as ridding themselves of their webOS devices.

    But then look at the Touchpad...

    Exactly my point - the TouchPad sold for peanuts versus what it cost HP to manufacture and distribute them.

    Not only won't they ship to the US, but they won't even bill you if you're outside of Europe.

    I verified this myself on their site.
