So, I sent an e-mail to HP asking for more information on the Pre 3 (release date and carriers to be exact) and this is the response I got.
Thank you for your continued interest in Hewlett-Packard products.
Hewlett-Packard is always looking to improve and expand our product line. However, as a Hewlett-Packard representative, I am unable to provide information on products that may or may not be under development. This is because Hewlett-Packard does not wish to give information on upcoming products and then retract the information if an unforeseen circumstance happens to arise. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The web sites above were sent out with no spaces in the addresses. They will sometimes arrive with spaces where they should not be, due to the way the email sends. You may need to copy the web site addresses, line by line, into your computer web address window and remove the spaces. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
