HP Pre 3 Available From £10.50 Per Month!

A tipster has informed us that the Palm Pre 3 is currently available from Vodafone via for as little as £10.50 per month on a two year contract which constitutes a total cost of ownership of just £252, far less than what we were expecting. (opens in new tab) is a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse and the package offered, called Your Plan 100, comes with 100 minutes, 500 texts and Vodafone Passport (saving money on calls and texting when abroad).

Sadly though it doesn't include any bundled data packages but it's worth noting that the HP Pre 3 is likely to be unlocked (as is the case for most handsets) which means that you should be able to plug in SIM cards from other mobile networks as well.

The Pre 3 comes with some great hardware like a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 3.6-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, a five megapixel rear camera, Wi-Fi and GPS plus a full size slide out keyboard, Synergy and wireless charging (AKA Touchstone) compatibility.

One of the unique selling points of the Pre 3 remains the WebOS which offers an "elegant card based interface" as well as native multi-tasking capabilities.
