I'm actual one of the seemingly few launch-day Sprint Pre customers who would prefer the current form factor to the larger EVO style slab.
    I love the form factor but honestly would probably be happier with a larger screen. I don't have small hands and heavy use of the pre can leave me cramped. not to mention unless there is an amazing software keyboard on the phone typing onscreen will be a pain on the current size.

    This sucks. I have no interest in a 4G phone, and it ****es me off that Sprint might have pushed back the availability of the Pre 2 just so that they can charge me an extra $10 per month.

    Don't take this the wrong way but sprint doesn't care if you are happy or not. All they care about is their bottom line. It sucks but at least sprint is for the most part still the least customer hostile big carrier in the USA

    please tell me that the Pre2 and next gen devices aren't made of plastic.

    I'd like to see a titanium slider to prevent any oreo.

    I don't mind plastic as long as it doesn't feel cheap. The pixi is all plastic but feels more premium than the pre does.

    HP once again pushed back the release date for the device I has specified in the earlier C40 thread. The lack of screens manufactured, time in which HP was able to sink money into Palm for screen orders and TI is behind in chip production of the OMAP4430.

    So the quick info is. Refresh Now, January you get 3 devices (PalmPad, and 2 new phones).
    I have another theory, since its pretty clear that even your source doesn't know the code name of the Pre 2. The Pre 2 is the Roadrunner, going by the ROA in its code description.

    The Roadrunner HD is the new OMAP 4 3.8" IPS LCD device that you talked about in the previous threads, and the Mansion is a new Slab type device.

    Couple that with the PalmPad, and we get The Roadrunner launching as the Pre 2, and the Roadrunner HD, the Mansion and PalmPad due for launch in January...hopefully coming across as a worldwide launch!

    Are you sure the 'mansion' may y not be the codename for the palmpad/tablet? I think that also may be a possibility. Also the 'broadway' is rumored to be the Pixi 2...

    Mansion is most likely something we haven't seen, as it looks as if Hurricane is still the Palm Pad. nItOxYs, please stop, you're never right, and we already know the Pre 2 is Roadrunner.

    all good points, one thing to note got from a source, evo was supposed to be launced in june on sprint, new palm 4g phone was supposed to released in july, and epic 4g in august. Sprints plan was to release a new 4g phone everymonth, but with palms downfall and hps aqquistion stopped their plans. they just need to hurry up before its toolate, and refreshers are probably too late..why wp7 will take the market in palms abense.

    What I don't get about that theory is that the new pre2 doesn't seem to support 4g but is supposed to be the refresh that came out this year. If that's the case wouldn't we be getting a sprint 4g version as well?

    see everyone has different sources and we all have different rumors. Mine state that yes the palm pre 2 announced for SFR and going to verizon is the roadrunner. The Roadrunner hd is the palm pre 2 version going to sprint thats 4g. They stated that yes this was the same C40 that was supposed to launch back in july on sprint 4G their second 4G phone after the EVO as stated above. So those set of phones produced has the 4G radio in them. So to me if your releasing a refresher for the states, and have both the 3G version (ala roadrunner same as SFR version) and you have the 4G version (ala roadrunner hd for sprint) they would release both refreshers this fall, then an entirly new HP branded devices like the broadway, and manision around the same time as the PalmPad early 2011. Thats what my sources say.

    Any possability that sprint will still get the RRHD this fall and it just hasn't been leaked yet and we get the new HP branded devices at CES?

    Exactly. No offense to OP, but I don't believe the insider is completely correct. It seems he is not actually "in the know", but know ppl who are, and sometimes info can be misplaced or changed sometimes when traveling from person to person.

    That is very believable and I bet you Sprint is counting on Pre 4G (Roadrunner 4G) because they need to be announcing a new 4G Premium device soon.

    I would be willing to bet yes. If HP is smart, their devices will be released similar to the Samsung Galaxy Pro Series -- released on every carrier, with carrier exclusive designs (and possibly features). With HP getting a Samsung employee, it seems more likely this will be the case. This would be best to battle a possible iPhone surge next year, if the rumor comes true that iPhone 5 will be a CDMA/GSM hybrid and be on Sprint/Verizon/ATT.

    I still doubt the iphone 4/5 multiple carrier rumor.
    I hope that HP does two sprint devices one the RRHD w/ 4g this year and a second flagship device w/ 4g that is also on all other carriers with variants a la the galaxy s line. As long as they put out a 4g device on sprint sprint is going to throw money and marketing at it. Sprint only has 2 4g devices on the market and doesn't want to be left behind when verizon hits the ground running with LTE devices next year.

    Sounds like it. I don't see how that would justify the HD tag at the end though if that's the case

    okay so lets clarify all the code names and rumored devices here. Some one please correct me if there's an error:

    Roadrunner = Pre 2 3G (already leaked)

    Roadrunner HD/C40 = Pre 2 4G w/OMAP 4 + IPS LCD

    Mansion = rumored slab device (specs unknown)

    Hurricane = rumored tablet device

    Broadway = rumored Pixi 2



    Personally I think if the above rumored devices are true then it would make sense why Sprint reportedly passed on the roadrunner and is waiting instead on HPalm releasing the roadrunnerHD/C40 instead. That would mean the roadrunner/Pre2 device would only be released on Verizon and GSM carriers for now...

    Ok so assuming that this is true and that these devices will all be hitting in the next 3-5 months we can probably assume that the Pre 2 will hit within the next 60 days the Pixi2 to hit shortly thereafter (15-45 days after pre2) so probably unveiled at CES and in retail within 2 weeks of the announcement.
    We can also assume that the RRHD and Mansion will launch in the same time frame or shortly there after the announcement and the Hurricane will probably be last.

    TLDR
    pre2 Nov-Dec
    pixi2 Dec-Jan
    C40 & Slate Jan-Feb
    Hurricane Feb-March

    That would actually be a nice release schedule plus could lead to great marketing and mindshare. Plus if they get the tablet out Feb that would be enough time to really hit the ads get people interested and using the tablet before the assumed april launch of the ipad2. plus if they spank apple in specs and if the marketing and everything else falls into line may actually be able to keep sales up after the ipad2 is launched.

    then again this is all info i pulled out of my **** so it's probably all wrong
