The firesale, everybody knows, the pre3 came for 79.- Eur in Germany, but the HP website was overflow.
In german forums nearly nobody got one pre3 or veers from HP directly. Seems mostly Tpads from HP.
Some internet shops, amazon ... were selling the Touchpads cheap.
The touchstone, BT keypad (nice aluminium) and cover of touchpad was half price from HP shop for a few days!!
For me: shipping 2 days, everything perfect!
But our Electronic Megastores (f.e. Media Markt) sold the Touchpad on the fireday for firesale price...
At the end of the day, no pad was left...
And SUDDENLY (!!) 6. to 7.Sep they got fresh "stuff" !
No Touchpads, but veers and pre's and for different prices!
Veer always minimum 99.-
pre3 for 79.- 99.- 149.-
Full 2 years warranty!
I bought 2 pre3's for 89.-...
and owned already one...
bought for 349.- from HP shop 15.8.2011 and it was delivered 25.8.2011, the first pre3official in Germany, i think.
First days 500 - 600.- Euro on ebay!
And now, 2 days ago, the MediaMarkt offers the pre3 for unbelievable price...
Now the price was down to 220.- Euro.
I sold one today for 250.- and the second one i have to keep.
May bee, they get more down, but i think they go slowely up to 300.-
I was really happy, to get one of the rare pre3's from HP shop.
I try to get the refound
When they refound me, would be grate. If not, is ok...
Now i have a Pad, full equipped :-)
a veer and 2 pre3' (second for bad times)
and i'am happy with that!
I'am a bad man, selling a pre3 for 250.- Euro today... sorry...
If you need some help, like translating to germans, let me know.
How mouch, you have to pay, 550.- Dollar (400 Euro)??
You may safe 150.- Dollar. And you have a warranty problem!
I would not do that...
The veer of my daughter gets no Wlan, has to get repaired. No changing veer from HP. That goes to England for warranty repair.
