    According to several HP employees I spoke with today, (unlocked) AT&T Pre3s are available only to HP employees. Their price is $75 each.

    I expect the same situation we see on eBay with Pre3s will occur with Touchpad 4G/64GB starting tomorrow.

    Yes, you could get one on eBay. No, you don't need to get an ATT contract to use it. Simply an AT&T SIM or for that matter any GSM SIM will do, i.e. if you get an unlocked Pre3.

    You don't even have to sign up for a contract if you supply the phone. Just set up an account for month-to-month service. I did this when I got my unlocked Pre 2.

    I understand that you may also be able to get a prepaid ATT SIM, but I have read in the forums that your data speeds may be slower.

    If you intend to use the phone with AT&T, then the phone not being unlocked, should not be much of an issue for you.

    UNLOCKED: <- Not sure of this. There is contradictory information provided by the seller.

    NOT UNLOCKED:

    Sanjay, FYI, that one you have listed as "UNLOCKED" even shows in the description:

    Other Info:
    The phone is locked to AT&T.

    Under 'Item Specifics' the seller has listed "Carrier: Unlocked". Now which part of the sellers post is an incorrect 'cut & paste', god only knows. But, what it does indicate though, is the general level of technical knowledge the sellers have of the product that they are selling.

    Here is an alternate listing.
