    Just noticed that on ebay, the Pre 2 prices are increasing fairly rapidly. I wonder if this is because all those that got in on the fire sale are depleting their stocks and have no more to sell or if just the increased demand due to people discovering how good WebOs can be.

    Either way, if you are on the fence about getting one, better make up your mind fairly soon as prices have steadily increased from about $125 a few weeks ago for one new in box to around $175 and up.

    Just a heads up.

    Yup I tweeted this last night. I think it has to do with the cancellation of some of those Pre2 orders from HP. Then again I missed out on at least 2 that went for 20 less than I paid last friday.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Yep and $399 off contract.

    I tried before I bought mine on ebay to sweet talk them but they wouldn't budge.

    Thanks, derek, for the heads up. This thread led me to look into this more and...

    FWIW: Here's what I just posted in another thread:

    *********
    I just pulled the trigger and did the "Buy Now" deal on ebay for the unlocked GSM version. The last auction ended at $170 plus shipping, I believe, and ebay's trend graph showed that prices have been climbing. I paid $180 including charger and case with free shipping, so I guess that's not too bad.
    **************

    Time will tell, but meanwhile, I'm closer to finally upgrading my launch Sprint Pre and my life of addiction to webOS (besides my Touchpad, that is! ).

    I managed to snag my old one for 150, then it broke. My new one cost around 250.

    I got one for $127 last Thurs! Basically brand new.

    I looked on eBay tonight... one seller had "more than 10" brand-new available in his listing and one had sold. I refreshed the page a few minutes later and another had sold. Then, a few hours later a third had sold, and this time the page reflected a $20 bump in price.

    When we could easily buy these, we were all content to upgrade when it was most convenient or maybe when the Pre 3 came out ... Now that we know supply is limited, oh how we want them!

    Once the supply is really low I wont be surprised if they go up to $250.00.

    Can't be worse than the fabled AT&T Pre 3.

    Started out 599, a few hours later 699 and checked yesterday 749 for a Touchstone with a free AT&T Pre 3.

    I paid $169 with ship for a NIB sealed Pre 2 on ebay. Arrived yesterday. I saw nothing cheaper than this listed.

    PalmOS: Zire71, Clie NX70V, LifeDrive, T|X
    WebOS: VZW Pixi Plus, now VZW PRE 2

    Wow that's cheap! I kind of want a backup just in case mine breaks lol, but I was able to get mine about 2 weeks ago for $153.88. Couldn't be more happier with it!

    24.99 from verizon now problem is that then you lose the mobile hotspot for free lol
    In a world of droid, Pre does it better.

    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?
