You said the veer seems "The veer always seemed gimmicky and lame" so i don't remotely know why you'd consider that as to me it seems like you'd just be setting you're self up to be angry and have buyers remorse.
i don't know what kind of buyer you are but i don't just run out and buy a phone because it's new. i ride my contract out, as you seem to do too, So i'd be very wary of buying something that you're unlikely to be happy with.
you said you like webos and the Pre 3 fits you're needs perfectly. Seems to me that's what you want and what you should wait on.
I think you really need to ask you're self, "How long are you willing to wait." i mean what day is the exact final straw. If webos is what you want most i'd just wait personally. You're on sprint, so it's cheaper. You may be able to ride it out.
I'd just pick what i want, find out how long i'll wait, then wait.
