    I'ts madness that people go whining like little kids when they dont get it their way, honestly ppl moan on as if their entitled to an aftersale price cut just because some1 else may have got one somewhere else.

    The shops are totally correct in insisting you pay for something you AGREED to pay when you clicked "BUY NOW", i have zero sympathy for people who try to cheat the system and deny others the chance to get their orders in the right way.

    It also makes the stock just bounce back and forth from retailer > customer > back to retailer when they just return the item "because its too expensive".

    HP arent making anyone do anything, its down to people taking the pish and ordering them full price to make sure they get in and buy 1 before anyone else.
    Before I pressed the buy now button, I phoned cs @Palm Eurostore and they aid there would be a price drop, so to go ahead and place the order and that wen the price adjustment has the green light, I will get a refung. We got that clear?

    Just cause you are bitter that you haven't ordered one, doesn't mean you have to rant on others. Some of us took a calculated risk and my post says what, IMHO, would be the aftermath if they don't honor what their customer service advised us to do.

    Just for anyone who's got one from Amazon at full price, I called them yesterday about my TP and the difference-refund.
    According to what I've been told they've got a bit of an internal investigation (if you could call it that) going on and that we should get an email notification of if we'll get the reimbursement "soon", when pushed I was told it might be sometime today.

    If you reserved one from Argos to pick from a branch, then it would have been in stock at the time and they will hold it for you, but for a couple of days only.

    So I expect (being pessimistic) that I will only get the Pre 3 I have a confirmed order for (I hope).
    I also ordered from amazon for around 300 on the 22nd. It was direct from amazon, not some other retailer through amazon. My item should be arriving today, however I have called amazon several times and they refuse to pricematch, giving me only the option to refund it.

    Has anyone actually managed to pricematch amazon UK?
    I have also called HP but they say to just watch their blog as they havent made a decision for the EU market yet on how to proceed.

    Haven't made a decision for the EU market? They made a decision for Germany...
  8. #948

    Has anyone seen on HP UK Tablets page that the ex VAT prices are 74 & 96 whilst the inc VAT prices are 329 & 429. I know VAT has gone up, but not that far.

    Could this be the start of the re-pricing exercise?

    Did you get a name of the adviser - you get differnt stories from different agents depending on how creative they are with the responses to control the users response if you know what I mean ;-)

    I queried with them two days a go and they haven't come back with any comment yet - but most seem to be getting no price match only full refund response.

    As for the response that 'we cheated the system' - others took that calculated risk with Argos and Dixons group and got a positive result. It's not as if all the retailers announced a price drop time well in advance and we all nicely camped out and Q'd (in a nice orderly line) - we all had to battle with PC/browser/internet/multiple vendor web server issues - he/she who had most time and persistence won. I don't think I deserve a cheap touchpad any more than the next person and won't blame Amazon for sticking to the price as that's the contract I was bound to when I clicked buy - but I don't seem any harm in trying - as mentioned other 3rd parties have honored HP's price cut (note it is HP driving the price cuts - all the price's were exactly the same) - it's not as if I send this back to Amazon that they will sell the TP at 312 to anyone else.

    Crazy... I mean they got VAT right with the 32Gb version... I think it is approximately 346.875% but WAY too high for the 16Gb version! I'm not paying 371.762% VAT!

    Not really knowing much about WebOS before all of this happened and doing some research I think that this situation and other economic decisions will give WebOS a new lease of life - and could be a huge competitor.

    Samsung have obviously been using the android OS, to great success with its galaxy rage.
    But now Google ( the people who made android (sorry to the people who that's obvious to)) are looking at buying Motorola. This means that not only will Samsung have direct competition in handsets, but they also have to lease the OS of their competitors.

    So could this be a perfect time for Samsung to take over WebOS?

    1. I got my package-- but Im afraid to open cuz then I wont be able to return it anymore for full refund.

    2. called Webos services, guy said amazon was a PITA in the US for refunds; so most likely refunds will go through HP directly; how/when/ not known, he said stay tuned for next week.. which has me worried cuz return policy is pretty short on amazon :S

    Hi,

    Thought I would share my experience with dealing with HP directly.

    I tried to get a partial refund with the price difference, but they said as they are not actually offering the difference themselves they wont do it.

    Last night they had the reduced price up for a little while and I took screenshots of it and emailed them with the screens.

    Ill let you know if they reply

    Hi,

    Carphone Warehouse just rang me stating they are going to refund the price difference since I was an early adopter.

    Any CPW customers on here, if not already done so, give them a ring
