    ok so the pre 3 is coming out next summer so it could be between late june or early september; assuming it will be released by august, by what date is HP obliged to give us information on which carriers will carry it?

    They are not obligated to give us the information. IMHO they will annouce mid March or mid April. That's just a guess I have no inside,outside information.

    When and how they announce carriers is mostly determined by the carriers. I'm hoping one of them has been working on it all this time so they can surprise us with a big carrier launch. But, I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Nobody is obligated, and we will probably find out throug a leak or FCC filing. The carrier(s) will be the one(s) to announce such things. Hopefully that's soon.

    it's not coming to sprint anytime soon. They are announcing a few new phones and tablets at CTIA, notice the absence of hp products.

    Where do you see a list of what Sprint is announcing in order to notice the absence of hp?

    An Iphone walks into a bar with a Palm Pre on it's shoulder. The bartender looks up and says, "Hey, that's pretty cool, where can I get one of those?" and the Palm Pre says "Hipstertown, they're all over the place"

    . The EVO 4G has mobile hotspot. That is not on Verizon. They reason it was not on the original pre was because they didn't put it on there.

    I'm really not one of those ever optimists when it comes to HP Palm, but I do think it is possible that those devices are listed because they're new and haven't been announced yet. Since the Pre 3 has technically already had an official announcement, Sprint could still announce that they will be carrying it, but the focus of the leak was on new phones that no one has seen yet. They do have 2.5 hours scheduled after all. And the article doesn't say that this is all that Sprint will announce, just that these are the hot new products they'll be announcing.

    again what most anaylist are saying is the main thing sprint is announcing is carrier partnerships not new handsets, so they could very well announce something from HP.

    FYI:

    "Aside from that, however, analysts expect handset news at the CTIA show largely to be confined to carrier partnership announcements rather than brand new gadget rollouts."

    I think it's totally up in the air. Wild speculation won't really get us anywhere. Considering we saw a TouchPad with a rear camera, perhaps some hardware decisions just aren't final. Personally, I'm hoping for an AT&T version, although failing that I suppose I'm guaranteed to get the Veer.

    Funny that this thread got bumped, guess they missed your "mid march" prediction, still hopes for "mid April" though...
