    This thread was pretty awesome before the tired old "make it right" discussion was brought up again. Isn't there a pile of threads already beating that dead horse?

    Deesugar, thanks for sharing. Hopefully we'll see more of these out in the wild shortly!

    Nice post, thanks.
    I know it was mentioned that the battery will be changeable. Can you confirm this?

    If you think about it, all they have to do is RELEASE WebOS 2.1 for the older devices, even with official images for the different carriers, and they would have "made it right". Wasn't the whole complaint, not about DEVICES, but about WebOS 2 on older devices?

    I won't mind Bing maps if it starts up quickly and doesn't lag like Google Maps.

    I think Google has given up on us and I can't think of anything better then Bing.

    did it have 4g? I'm guessing not.

    I'm really curious as to why people are still asking this question since after Feb 9th when it was clear that the Pre 3 was not going to be a 4G device. Companies just don't do surprise hardware changes before a release.

    so that's a no then. Got it...thanks for the brick wall.

    it was worth a question. And I really don't see how it was so obvious, people are still shocked to hear it's on vzw, so I thought i'd ask.

    Well, the battery on the Veer's spec sheet was listed as non-changeable. So if the Pre3's battery was also non-changeable it would have probably also been on the spec sheet. I could be wrong though.

    The obviousness of the Pre 3 not having 4G comes from the fact that every tech site already has reported on it. HPalm has a page on this. There is even a dedicated Pre 3 Wikipedia page:

    HP Pre 3 - Wikipedia

    There a bunch of threads on PreCentral about this.

    The only thing that is not official is what networks it will be on. But I can tell you, the one I saw over the weekend was on Verizon.

    Rubenstein told engadget in March that the Pre customer base was too small to mention (or something like that). That tape keeps running through my mind (when I'm not blocking out the fact that I wasted 2 hours of my time listening to that interview).
    I personally think that the "make things right" quote was probably an injudicious slip of the tongue - perhaps when it was still plausible that they could get 2.x working on the original Pres.

    Still, I keep comparing Palm to Apple.. when they were struggling in the beginning, it was the True Believers that kept the faith, and ended up being their best evangelists. It would be a shame if HP squandered that with the level of intensity we webOS faithful hold..
