    So I just got called by PalmEurostore.

    They offered to refund me in full, or ship me one Pre3 at full price. They're going to ship it today.

    So that's it folks, it's official. There will be no fire sale, at least not from Palm, and no bundle. They seem to be fulfilling orders on first come first serve. FYI I ordered on Tuesday 17th.

    Really? I'm happy enough.

    When I ordered last week, I thought £299 was a good price compared to the competition - none of which even appealed to me.

    It only seems expensive in light of the Touchpad fire sale, but that's comparing apples to oranges IMO.

    £299 just seems like a lot of money for an EOL phone with an unknown future in terms of OS/App support.

    I'm actually glad my order got cancelled by them now. Didn't really want to pay full price and was ordering on the assumption that i'd be refunded.

    Not disappointing at all! Got a call and the phone will be shipped today! The person calling seemed to be in quite a hurry to go through her speech. I guess they have a lot of calls to make.

    You've ruined my ingenious plan,too. But anyway, Pre3 is the last palm phone in the word.
    Anyone who really like it, go ahead.

    I have to wonder why they don't just update their website with "Pre3 are only to be sold at full price, call now to confirm your order or it will be cancelled in 24 hours... kthxbi".

    Even a mass email would be nice forget calling us.

    Putz... Here; in Brazil, we pay tax as 60% over shipping + imported products. I don't know what is worst: cannot find to buy or maybe buy and sell a kidney to pay...

    Just to give some idea: (€349.00 + € 30) * 1.60 = €606.40 .:. $871.94

    Because it would fill their phone lines and they prefer to go though the orders in an orderly manner?
