    So I got my Pre 3 for around $650 shipped - I noticed today that they are selling for hundreds less - there is even a buy it now for $475! - so it appears pricing is getting a bit better for the more patient folks out there.
    Pre 3 QWERTY, The Veer, GSM Pre 2 and GSM Pixi Plus - 64GB White TouchPad and 32GB Black TouchPad

    just bought mine, QWERTY UK, for 185 including shipping to Toronto on eBay...can't go wrong at that price in my mind...!

    was wondering how long the high prices were going to stay high

    maybe/hopefully the price trend will drastically drop

    Bought mine for 360 10 days ago. It hasn't been shipped yet due to Paypal being ******** in regard to my new address. The seller is shipping it on monday, will get it on thursday.

    Now I hear this... worst deal of my life.

    The sellers are going to lose money (on ebay) or they are not going to get sold

    in the UK they were 10.50 a month on a 24 month contract which works out at 252 pounds, sell it on ebay it has to be 300 minimum just to cover costs and break even

    I have one but I won't list it on ebay, and defiantly will not sell for less than what it is costing me. I would much rather keep it and give it one of the kids and let them use it than sell it at a loss

    Keep in mind that some of those lower prices are UK-ship only. When I got mine for 340 pounds, there were plenty that were less but wouldn't ship internationally. So it seems that we in the U.S. get to pay a premium.

    To be honest, even those new prices are exorbitant! Wish they were way cheaper since I can't justify paying that much for the phone even though it is relatively 'rare'. Just my opinion though. Just asking...is it too late to see much development for webOS? I'm hoping that since the touchPad are many people's hands, it might spark some interest. I doubt though. There are some key applications which I really want for my Pre.

    It seems that those who want them the most (i.e. the USA) are stuck between a rock and a hard place with sellers

    Sellers need to recoup at least costs, and the USA don't want to pay the costs we in the UK have to pay, so either sales will dry up and the USA will have to do without and we in the UK keep them and use them or sell at a loss to UK only

    Its interesting as I had a Nokia N900 (still have one) Nokia disowned the phone only 4/5ths complete but they are still selling for a reasonable price on ebay etc despite being a dead phone

    so in 12 months time our Pre3's may still be selling for the same kind of money they are now

    But it does seem that its not so much the UK people that want them, but the USA

    Sadly dollars. It's going to suck to pay more for att. So can only allow myself to pay what I can sell my evo 3d for.

    Guys think about it, there are so many TP's and Pre's put on for silly money, with so many people undercutting them they are going to have to follow suit.

    Although mind you havn't seen and TP's drop hopefully when the next 200,000 are released
