    I hope you're right, but have my doubts. The T-Mobile deal went through very easily, like the Comcast-NBC one.

    That said, it was merely supposition on my part.

    .
    What do you mean the deal went through very easily. It's going to take over a year to go through if you read the reports.
    I think the buy out would be a huge mistake for the FCC & Dept of Justice would be crazy to let this happen. That puts 75% of customers under ATT & Ver. Way to much power IMO.

I think if they were to pick up the touchpad and either veer or pre3 (preferably pre3) rather quickly, they can take advantage of the momentum.
    That's what I was thinking. T-Mobile is the only other "budget friendly" national carrier. I doubt AT&T will keep T-mobile's low prices, so I could see a lot of their customers switching to Sprint.

    Sprint users all say it with me now....with feeling....

    Agreed... but then the CEO of Verizon supposedly agrees, too:

    Who's flying this thing?

    I agree with RSanchez: if you think you wouldn't want the Pre2, you haven't used one. When a Sprint user says they don't want a Pre2, it smacks of deep sour grapes. Both the hardware and webOS 2.0 are a delight to use, I could never go back. I've become addicted to the snappy performance, to Flash, Just Type (I NEVER use navigation any more, unless I have time to kill and I need to decide which game to play, in which case I go to my Games launcher page), stacked cards, Text Assist, contacts Favorites, more robust multitasking, (did I mention snappy performance?).

    I could see that as well! And with cool new phones like the EVO3D and hopefully the Pre 3 they would want to choose Sprint for it's rocking 4G and amazing phones!

    Oh and I just noticed this thread has been put on the main site! Cool beans ya'll!!!

    With Sprint phasing out their iDen network over the next two years and switching to Sprint Direct Connect and HP wanting to get into enterprise solutions with WebOS, this would be a great opportunity for HP to develop a ruggedized phone for this new service.

    Heading back from a national managers meeting and had a chance to talk to the HP rep there. He confirmed, with me at least, that Sprint is getting the Pre 3. I was showing him my launch day Sprint minus running 2.1 and he was impressed. I tried to nail down some details on the Touchpad but he said everything was so secretive he didn't know anything solid other than they are defiantly pricing to be in line with the Ipad. No launch date info of course but he said June should be a fun month.

    Well, here's hoping that we Sprintophiles get the Pre3. I wish we did get the Pre2 just so there was an option I could switch to right NOW should my current Pre die. I really do not like this limbo.

    I am still annoyed that Sprint did not get the Pre 2. I probably would have been able to get one through insurance when the Pre was EOLed. Exactly how I moved from the Treo 650 to the Treo 700.

    Two prominent companies is not the same as only two companies.

    That seems too simplistic. Its based on the premise that someone needs to use a product to know if they want one. That's just false. I don't need to use hot pink Prius to know i don't want a hot pink car or a car that looks like a prius. I don't need to drive a pickup truck to know i don't need a truck of any kind. I've never used a 60 inch flat screen to know i don't want one. Why? I don't have a wall big enough to fit it and i'm not moving. I don't need to use a Kyocera Echo to know it.

    There's nothing wrong with one person liking a device but that doesn't mean everyone will like it. I've never used a pre 2 and don't want one cause i don't want a physical keyboard of any kind, i don't want slider of any kind, I want a HD camera, i want some specific apps, and i don't like the music player software in webos. They are all mandatory and i don't need to actually use the phone to know if it meets my needs. A couple i can just look a the specs.

    With all due respect, you and rsanchez are misinterpreting the previous poster's comments. All he said was that IF the Pre2 had come to Sprint, a lot of Pre- owners would have used their upgrade and then not been eligible for the Pre3 when/if it's released. He's not commenting on the quality/worthiness of the Pre2, but on the logic of releasing two upgraded phones so close to each other on the same carrier.

    I agree with him, if the Pre2 was to be released on Sprint I'd still have to wait to see what's happening with the Pre3. And I know I'd love the Pre2 whereas the Pre3 might be too big for my next phone.

    Exactly. I was mad that Sprint didn't get the Pre 2 because I thought it was a worthy device. Still do. However, Sprint needs phones this summer to go up against not one, but two iPhones on the two largest carriers. I think between the EVO3D and the Pre 3, they have that. And they need everyone not to waste their upgrades on a minor phone like the Pre 2 was and use it this summer. And I even think that dual screen phone Echo could be a good seller, although only to a certain type of person. And the Nexus S 4G is a good phone too.

    So hopefully we get the Pre 3!!!
