    Then 5 months from now they could have magically reentered the scene, and do a really spectacular announcement.

    I think there are people who still believe the "HP will release a new phone every 2 months" thing...

    Iphone 5 (or whatever it will be called)
    Various 2.3 and 2.4 android devices on all carriers.
    More Honeycomb Tablets

    This announcement is an Epic Faill on their part. They are not going with the market on phone form factor. They already have a different form factor in the Pre 2. If they want to get ahead, they need to release a keyboardless phone with a ~4.0 inch screen. That is what people want in mass, not a smaller Pre 2. The pre form factor is not popular no matter how much we like it. A smaller version is just nuts.
    I agree 100%

    He is currently on his company tour going around to all of the major HP areas and setting them up and talking to them. If it means a better organized company I am A-OK with him not being there (plus he wasn't apart of WebOS..yet).

    WHAT A JOKE!

    Care to explain that LEO?

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Touchpad concept and I will still probably get a Pre3, but C'mon!! SUMMER??? It is FEB!!!! Hope he gets criticized everywhere for the stupid comments....
    Summer is June so 12 weeks is not such a bad thing. But I do have a feeling that next month we will know everything

    Nope, by June, same as in years past, everyone will just wait to see what Apple has up their sleeve for the new iPhone model launch. That will take all the wind out of the sails(and sales) for HP. Plus this year it's a combined iPhone launch on Verizon as well as AT&T. Launching a month before or after Apple is a recipe for disaster.

    I think what is actually happening is they ARE holding to Leo's statement. The Veer will be released in the next few weeks and the Pre3, a few weeks after that. Right?

    it is stil a lie....spin it any way you want to.

    Is there any chance this thing becomes available sooner?

    If it is within a month of an iPhone event and launch in either direction, then HP really messed it up. Let Motorola/HTC rival Apple with a spec war right after the iPhone; let them tear each other apart.

    Seriously, if this is out when I'm due for an upgrade I will get it. If it isn't, then, well, I won't be waiting. And, from the generally tone of the posts today, nobody will.

    they can make you wait 6-7 months for a phone they are not losing money by
    doing it

    HP won't ride on the success or failure of the smartphone/tablet announced today

    We all just have to face the truth...Palm is gone
    HP has control and smartphones are in the back burner behind their PC's and now tablets
    Everything you say is true, but you gotta ask yourself, why would they invest so heavily (monetarily, time, reputation) in something only to engage in it halfheartedly?

    Imagine a speeding train. It's already going pretty fast and accelerating rapidly. Let's call it the smartphone/tablet express. Now imagine (a former company known as) Palm. They hopped on the train when it was slower, drove it for a while, started losing their grip, and finally fell off the train in a nearly unnoticed cloud of dust about 9 months ago.

    Today, after almost 8 months with the (former) Palm products all shiny and new, HP steps up to the edge of the track, puts up a bunch of big banners, adds loudspeakers, and proclaims to a large crowd, "We're going to take over the whole railroad ..."

    ...as the train goes roaring by...

    ...and HP just stands there and watches it ...

    "...errm after we get started sometime later this summer."


    Discouraging.

    Lmao wow i feel stupid i must say. I've had so much faith in palm and now HP. I've had an upgrade for at least a year and a half. I decided to wait knowing that HP would set the tech world on fire. Now the Pre 3 is all they have after all this time? If it was coming by say april then i would be stoked. But summer? Are you serious? Who the hell decided to release a smaller pre when the first one didn't sell? Who the hell is designing these things? All they keep releasing is different sizes of the pre. On top of that they didn't even speak about legacy webos devices and 2.0. I'm hoping it's released tomorrow to go along with the release of the pre 2 on a US carrier. If not then I will have to say my goodbye's and catch back up with you guys in the summer. I love sprint therefore i wont leave them but now i gotta deal with $h!!ty android. I mean i have to use this upgrade before sprint changes there policies. I'm sorry i just cant wait that long when all i have is a poorly designed,cheap, low budget pre. Of course i will get flamed but if anyone tries to argue that waiting another 6 months for something we've been waiting two years for then they're definitely blinded. We no longer can tell all the other ******* to wait until feb 9th, that HP will blow everyone away. Instead they made all of us including themselves look like fools.

    I'm going to use my Sprint upgrade too, however, I'm going to keep and still use my Pre- and simply sell the upgrade on ebay and wait for the Pre3.
