Under the hood, the HP Touchpad is identical to the Ipad2. Moreover, it has the same 9.7" IPS capacitive screen like the Ipad2 (but not necessarily manufactured by the same company). The specification on the Touchpad is so much better than the Ipad2 (e.g. decent front 2MP camera) but price wise, it is identical to the Ipad2.
However, with the recent announcement, HP has decided to sell the product at a massive discount of £99 for the 16GB version and £119 for the 32GB version. No wonder they have been sold out within the hour it was being announced! At this very moment, you can still buy the Touchpad but at a higher price than that on ebay and also on Amazon.
Do you know why people are flocking to buy the Touchpad? Well, it is cheap and secondly, those lucky users might be able to migrate the WebOS to Android or even Windows Phone 7! That is good news, isn't it? I am certain that there are many people who will try to make a fast buck over here.
With regards to the Pre3, it housed a dualcore cpu with 2011 smartphone specification. The original price of the Pre 3 is going out for £300 but with the discount, it is just £55! However, the problem here is that many retailers have stopped selling them because HP is recalling the Pre3! That is pretty sad, isn't it?
