Heads up folks, the image to the left is the Verizon-branded HP Pre3 that has shown up on eBay. As of the time of this writing, the asking price was sitting at $750 USD.
If you’re a webOS user on Verizon and you really need to get the webOS phone that could have been, keep an eye on the listing. The seller is accepting offers but it is unlikely they will accept an offer too far below $750.
So this means the Verizon Pre 3 is real, as suspected all along here at webOSroundup. As was announced back in February, this is also a world phone, coming with a SIM card slot and a Verizon SIM card for use overseas.
This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity or it could just be the tip of the iceberg. Let us know if you buy it and how much you ended up shelling out! We can only assume this is being sold by an employee of HP/Palm and that they aren’t necessarily supposed to be selling this phone.
UPDATE: AT&T Pre3 and AT&T TouchPad 4G also on eBay!
We expect these listings to go down very soon, so if you want one, you may want to make an offer for the full asking price.
