£69 Pre 3 spied on HP UK website
Company willing to discuss sales options
HP's Pre 3 smartphone has made an appearance on the company's website priced at a mere £69 including VAT.
While HP's main Pre page says the WebOS handset is "sold out", the "Handheld PCs" section of the site lists the Pre 3 at the knock-down price.
Previously, the Pre 3 was priced at £299.
Alas, the £69 handset "may not be available direct from HP", though the company is happy to take your calls on 0845 270 4142 "to discuss options", the site says.
You may choose to do so if HP emailed you at the weekend offering you a Pre 3 for £299. ®
Thanks to reader Alan for the tip
This site has been live since Wednesday 24.8.11 & has had the £69 price point there. This may be HP's RRP, but when there is no stock, it's worthless anyway.
from http://www.saynoto0870.com you can use 020 7949 0300 instead of 0845 270 4142
No stock, no chance
Just called today on the off chance. No stock, no update on availability, basically no chance. Which is a shame really :-(
Must be worth reporting to the ASA ???
Other retailer would get hammered for this.
Shame cos I'd like one, especially at that price.....
Because a webOS phone sounds like a really interesting thing, whereas an android phone doesn't?
