These were the conjectures of which I spoke:

This would be consistent with their inability to be upfront with their existing base.
Or maybe they won't say anything at all but hope to bury it
under their press about the new devices, since Ruby seems to feel existing webOS base is practically non-existent
, although I notice he felt free at his press conference to trumpet webOS win from enthusiastic fans in Laptop Mag poll.
And, you avoided answering the question. If Sprint doesn't carry the Pre 3, what would have you have HP do? Do you seriously expect them to subsidize a competing phone on a network that doesn't carry their phones?
As far as personalizing, I merely responded to your "sound disappointed". You personalized it, I simply responded.
