    I can't believe a spec bump will cause less than 2 months delay. It's not simply replacing a chip... I can't believe HP will wait 2 months with the Pre3.

    Removal of the tech specs is a solid bit of evidence supporting a hardware refresh for the Pre3

    Glad to know that I'm not crazy and someone else is seeing what I am.

    I think it's a Sprint inspired spec bump to 4G...because that's what I want, not because I have any inside information.

    Two months added to the speculated July 15th release date gives you the recently speculated September release.

    Honestly after now useing a Pre2 I can say the onlything the Pre3 needs spec bump wise is a 4g Radio- both LTE and WiMax so it can be 4g branded on all 3 carriers- toss in a bigger battery because that always helps and call it a day.

    1400mhz is 40% more than the Pre2 and the Pre2 is pleanty fast
    Pre3 has a nice GPU also that will make it run better.

    The Pre3 was in the hands of 90% of the "Real" review makers of the TouchPad- if they could talk about it they could say if the hardware or software seemed lacking/buggy.

    I am also betting on a spec bump- most likely just the 4g variant, hopefully larger battery and 1g of ram- followed by 16/32gig storage NOT 8/16 storage

    Do those 4 things to the Pre3 - screw the Pre3 maybe release it unlocked or whatever Call it the Pre4G like we know most sales reps will refer to it as lol

    I was surprised there was no word or murmering about the pre3 on TP launch events...

    When is the "next" event of any sort by HP?

    Maybe the german site is outdated, but the specs are still there:

    Moreover, if the leaked roadmap is correct, it says "fall". That could be much later than September. Ugh.

    A spec bump with the current dc cpu from the TP would be good. That and a radio bump (4G LTE?) would be welcome news. That might be why we have the TP in white coming out next month. Have to have the best proc on it's flagship tab and plenty of supply for the 1.2 dc for the phones then. I can hope.

    My guess is that Sprint is testing the phone right now, and probably found some errors in hardware and they're making HP fix them if they want their HP Pre3 on Sprint's network..

    Funny, that's exactly what I heard - Sprint wants no new phone without 4G, but I never thought HP would have that prior to the Pre4 - a reworked Pre3 seems out of the ballpark crazy

    Could be even more then just spec bump to 4G:

    Maybe AT&T and Verizon are the inky carriers willing to support webOS devices right now.

    If that's the case AT&T may have told HP they wanted some time to sell Veer's first and not release the Pre 3 so closely. Same with Verizon and the Pre 2.

    Well...the European Pre 3 is slated for release soon...doesn't this have to confirm that it is a US carrier issue of some sort?

    I keep thinking the same thing. Does that mean it's an issue in the radio? And really why would that cause them to take the specs down? Maybe the US is getting the Pre3 Plus! hahaha

    There is no official confirmation that Pre3 is to be released soon anywhere, just mobile sale sites that constantly change their release date.

    HP gave a Pre3 to all tablet reviewers, so they can experience the tablet sync. It does not mean Pre3 is ready to be released.
