HP Pre 3 Coming to Europe in Mid-July; Available for Pre-Order now at £399.00

In the middle of the HP TouchPad hype, HP puts a European Pre3 online for pre-ordering; ready to ship in Mid-July.

We're only beginning to try and find our ways out of the hussle of the TouchPad launch, and now HP Europe has decided to drop this bit of news on us. In the Palm webstore for Europe, the Pre 3 has been sitting quietly and waiting for its time to shine, and now suddenly there is an option to pre-order the device right now for £399.00 (similar to the 16GB TouchPad, which is $499 in the US) and have it shipped by Mid-July.

These details are only for the SIM-Free European model of the device, though, and until we have official word on what the price and availability will be for US customers, we don't want to make too many guesses here. What we can say, though, is that HP is not letting up on the world at all, and having the Pre3 available so soon after the TouchPad launch is very favorable amongst both the webOS faithful and those just being introduced to the platform. We've asked you a similar question once before, and now we should probably get ready to say it again:

"Are you ready to Pre3?"
