    @Zyphlin, well written sir (or ma'am). I think I will be following suit as well. They hyped and hyped, now we get another "in the coming months" brouhaha.. Personally, I'm at the end of my rope and so is my Pre Plus...

    Honestly, I think this was a corporate "Brain fart" (pardon the visual). Let me explain...

    Apotheker explained that on March 14, they will provide information as to how HP's new strategy will work, and it would encompass all of the previous announcements.

    I believe he meant to set a new policy for HP going forward, starting on the above date, but, screwed up when he specifically mentioned (probably because he misinterpetted internal communications) that the 2-9-11 devices would ".. be on sale just few weeks later" (quote from BBC article).

    He ALSO said, according to the BBC article "The product line will get a new name and come under the HP brand, Mr Apotheker says; the days of Palm and Palm Pre seem to be numbered." - so, the Pre 3 is likely the last of its kind, and new form factors will be coming.

    Anyway, March 14 is THE date to look at, when all is revealed.

    As for me, personally, Im just in "wait and see" mode.. with my unlocked GSM Pre+ overclocked, I have time.

    While we didn't get any promises about a shipping date from this guy to begin with... I'm bummed these phones aren't landing in a couple weeks. So ditto...

    Perhaps he only meant he would not announce THERE without product to ship!

    I just got this response from them, I emailed them last night:

    "Thank you for taking the time to email HP. HP regrets the inconvenience and disappointment that this news has caused. Please watch for new updates as they unfold.

    Regards,
    CEO Customer Relations"

    Original Pre, Pre Plus, Pixi and Pixi Plus won't get updated to webOS 2.0 -- Engadget

    anyone care to speculate what that entails? I am guessing a free upgrade for owners of an older palm hw, e.g. free upgrade from palm pre to palm pre 3.
    Or maybe a trade-in/upgrade credit?

    I really dont see how the pre 3 is cool... dont know what leo was smoking when he said they were going to release cool softwares.. Apart from the great multi tasking... the pre 3 is still inferior to the evo. I do want a touchpad though.

    We've been complaining for almost TWO YEARS. Yesterday was your "result".

    Not so, he has not gotten one handset into the end users hands...... And frankly he "mellow yellowed" on his customer base that in fact can be his best ally in spreading the gospel. That, he has lost.
