Apparently, the HP Pre 3 was going to be made available at both Verizon
and AT&T before HP stopped producing webOS hardware. While HP is not selling the device in the U.S., someone has put the phones up on eBay
. The only model that we can say was sold on the auction site was one that came in a box with the Verizon logo. The Verizon variant of the HP Pre 3, went for $750. Interestingly enough, it turned out to be a "World Phone" with both CDMA and GSM radios aboard. And while a few AT&T branded models were listed for as high as $659.00, those listings, along with one seeking $899.99 for an AT&T branded HP TouchPad 4G, appear to have been removed without even one bid
for the devices on the site.
This might be a good time to point out the dangers of bidding on a HP Pre 3 on eBay. Because the phone is available in France, as we reported
, some models are being sold with an AZERTY keyboard. These units are unlocked and are allegedly compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile's pipelines in the States. We noticed some listings for a QWERTY keyboard equipped unit that said on the bottom of the listing that the phone actually had an AZERTY styled keyboard. Be careful!
