    ...and now I see the thread tagged as [rumor] which isn't even accurate, IMO. The HP emplyee didn't start the rumor, the OP did...

    The only relevant quote from the OP, is

    He said that "even he" didn't know when the Pre 3 would be released and that HP employees have been told it is still "TBA".
    Can't the topic simply be changed to "Random HP employee says Pre 3 release TBA".

    not even an actual hp employee. These random 'rumor' threads are just amazing.

    I have to say I feel a bit miffed that this thread has now been "buried" by the mods in the obscure "HP and Palm general discussion" category specifically because it seems they perceive a statement by an HP employee about the Pre 3 "not being ready for release yet" as too negative for the main Pre 3 postings.
    Several posters have claimed this is simply a "random rumour" but if in fact the only things allowed to be posted in this forum were free of any rumour, then this forum would solely consist of HP's official press releases!
    I suspect this forum would then rapidly lose it's members and no-one would bother to read it.
    Let me say on record I was simply in good faith trying to accurately pass on information I was given first hand by an HP employee whom far from seeming to "know Jack", seemed to know quite a lot about the progress of both the TouchPad and the Pre 3 through the various stages of development to final release.
    Could it be that the mods of pre|central.net have failed to embrace the spirit of the First Amendment of the US constitution?

    It's not negative, it's just EMPTY. It reported absolutely nothing new, the employee didn't know anything and said so... It doesn't carry any greater weight than all the postings of people talking to Sprint tech support about updates "coming soon now"...

    It's not even on the level of a rumor, honestly. People who know nothing and then go on to make general guesses really don't fall under the category of rumor...

    ...that doesn't apply to privately owned message boards.
