Source for IDEOS 8150s in the USA?

Does anyone know of a source for the IDEOS 8150s in the US? Dont see any on
NewEgg, and can only find newer (more expensive) models from other sources.

Thanks
Gorav

I've gotten one from Negri Electronics... $133.50

Thanks I was looking there but now those are only available on backorder
from there, and no info on when / if the next batch would come in.

Will try to contact them and get more information

I found one new 8150 on E-bay for $124, from the USA (so shipping charges
were reasonable). They only had one available at that price, but its worth
looking on Ebay to see if more pop up. Seems like the few sites that have
the 8150s are all shipping from Asia.

I'm guessing that Huawei has stopped production of the 8150 and is focusing
on the newer models?

yeah, so this is the problem (or what's great) with android. the
phones cycle very quickly, so it's best to buy phones in the amounts
you need them very early on.

refurbished/used phones can be very unreliable (usually battery or sd
card), so caveat emptor (or make sure you test it well before rolling
them out).
