I'm one of the luckier ones in the group of Pre3 owners in waiting. I'm not married to any one cell provider. My contract ended 6 months ago. I doesn't matter either way to me which carrier gets the Pre3 first. But I realize that I am the exception. That fact came with a price for me. I was stuck with a Centro, (don't get me wrong my Centro has has worked flawlessly all of the past 2 1/2 years), however I never got to use & own a webOS product at all.
Once my contract ended, it seemed foolish to me to run out and get a Pre2 even though I knew that it was coming out before Palm was purchased by HP.
Once I know that Palm was definitely up for sale, to me the Pre2 was going to be a "holdover or bridge phone", meaning it was to be a stop gap measure until other models that Palm had hoped to make but wouldn't be able to make due to lack of funds.
That is also why I decided to skip on getting a Veer, but I will be right out there to get a Pre3 the minute it hits the stores.
