    Hi guys,

    Today I was thinking about getting a Pre 2 for my father, checked ebay but noticed that the prices have gone up! An unlocked Pre 2 for 80-100 bucks? I bought mine at 45.

    Maybe now webOS phones are considered collectors' items?

    well, prices go up as we get closer to Christmas.

    but, prices have been staying high for decent used smart phones as people upgrade from "dumb phones" they used on prepaid plans. More prepaid companies are offering reasonable amounts of data, worth switching to.

    And of course, more people are wanting, and learning how to use smartphones to access the web on the go. For a LOT of people using a flip phone with 2G data and no real web browser, the Palm phones are a huge step up, without moving into the expensive 4G service tier.

    I suspect they will remain in demand as long as 3G service is still widely available.

    All the while that (Palm/HP) webOS devices remain the ONLY webOS devices - they already are 'collectors items'!

    There is no new supply of webOS devices. As long as there is demand, prices will stay high or even rise...

    That would be 8gb not to many 16gb pre3's in the UK.

    Because they know there are people willing to buy them even at a little higher price. No one will ever search for a webOS device unless they know what they're looking for in order to buy it.
    Pre 2 (16 GB, dismissed), Pre 3 (8 GB, dismissed), Wi-Fi TouchPad (32 GB). Moved to Android (Nexus 5) in late 2014.

    As I thought - which seems to make most new 16Gb Pre3's somewhat overpriced, just for the extra 8Gb - especially as 'supermarket' USB memory is probably down to about $1/Gb now?
