    I've been seeing all the filings of the Pre3 and the GSM 'world phone' varieties is all that has made any news. Sooo I was thinking that if HP can't get a deal with a CDMA carrier will they make one anyway? It would be possible to be directly from HP and put the phone on carrier....correct? Also will it be better to buy from HP? Won't you get updates alot sooner than waiting for carrier approval? Anyway....my main question was do you think that CDMA (Sprint) WebOS phone will be built soon...not end of year..as one Sprint rep told me.

    they will, HP has signed a deal with sprint to provide prepaid data. i cant see them not putting the touchpad on it. if i could wait thats probably the one i would get because most of the time the TP will be home but when i want to take it out i can alway buy some data
    Want to help design and write an app?

    HP doesn't go through certifying a CDMA Pre 3 for nothing.

    Problem is, the way CDMA works (at least in North America and Canada) is that they don't use R-UIM cards, so the carrier won't activate it for you. So even if HP releases the CDMA Pre 3, if Sprint won't activate it, then that's that.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    No. And I also think that is illegal.

    The world phone is CDMA and GSM. It is for Verizon's frequencies, 850 and 1900 MHz so it will definitely be on Verizon. Sprint also uses 1900 Mhz so it could be used on both possibly. Not sure if other phones on Sprint and Verizon have the 850 Mhz frequency on Sprint even though it doesn't use it.

    Also, what you are describing as buying from HP is like buying an unlocked phone. Can't do that with CDMA. It will have to be approved by Sprint to activate it on Sprint.

    Yeah that what I was hoping for to avoid all the carrier crap when updates are pushed out. I don't want to leave Sprint (was on AT&T yrs back..and hated it) but I'm really fond of WebOS. Android just doesn't do it for me but if push commes to shove when my phone dies....HP will most likely lose another customer.

    Zero. They have different modems.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv
