Now that's what I call priced right: Veer for 179 ! (incl. Standard Shipping, phone is simlock-free!)

HP is putting these up for sale, German keyboard layout btw: HP Veer, O2 DE, EU UMTS, QWERTZ - HP Store Deutschland

I am from Germany and just ordered one, see if they ship it. I currently use a UK Pre 2 and I don't mind the QWERTY keyb at all. So if you are used to qwerty, I guess you won't mind the QWERTZ one.
