After I heard that the Pre2 was selling for $50 on the HP site I tried to get one. My Sprint Pre- is fading fast and NO Pre3 So thought I'd try to get one to FrankenPre on Sprint. Too little, too late--OOS!
They were still listed on SMB site for $409 but I could not get the order to go through on line. I figured they had to match their own price so I called SMB, got through and placed an order--got an order # and confirmation email. Admittedly the CSR said she had no idea about availability--they had lots of phones but also LOTS of orders, but she would place the order and see what happened. After that I could not ever get through on the SMB website to check order status so I called last night and got through. The CSR said the orders were still all on hold.
Just out of curiosity I asked if he had a guess about the likelihood of me getting a phone. He said that he thought the possibility was very good--that they had thousands of phones and would begin shipping them in the next 24-48 hours. So since HP info has historically been so reliable and I believe absolutely everything that HP says, , I'm sure I'll see a Pre2 soon!
Long way to say that you might want to check SMB if you are looking for a Pre2. Time will tell if I scored one.
PS I have a tracking number on the 32GB TP that I ordered on Friday night, 8/19!
Update: Talked to them again last night and the CSR said he was fairly sure I would NOT get a Pre2.
everything looked like it is/was brand new. No stickers calling out refurb. My first webos device. Had WM, BB, iPhone and Android prior. So far I like it. Just wish it was slightly bigger. OS is pretty slick though.
@pat the cat....have you ever used this site before? Some of the reviews are pretty bad...Thanks again
no I had never heard them before. I searched for the HP PN for the unlocked version and they came up the lowest so I placed the order half thinking it was bogus. Like I said pleasantly surprised when it showed up all shiny and new
