    So a friend of mine works for Best Buy.
    He had the chance to play with a Pre 3 today.

    Here is an image:


    He has also informed me that it is going to be released on Monday 1st August!
    I don't know how accurate that is, earlier today he told me it would be September.

    But I think that the fact that stores have demo models mean it has to be coming very soon.

    Oh and Hi to everyone! New to the forum.

    Great news, thanks.

    I notice the phone app looks different to the one on 2.1. I can't see any letters under the numbers and there's no * symbol. Very odd.

    They've only been around for a couple of years. 50% owned by carphone warehouse.

    I think that's the phone-unlock screen where you enter the pin, not the actual phone app.

    That's what I'm talking about. An actual picture!!!!

    Thanks for the post. I had a feeling that it would be launching in Europe first. I hope it hits the U.S. soon. I find it weird that HP didn't do a press release if it does launch on Monday.

    Thanks again for the post & welcome!

    we all can only hope.

    I don't see any reason for a delay...okay not a delay but, I don't see any reason why its not been launched yet.

    they push out the veer in epic time but the pre 3? Hurmmm

    I figured I'd just be one of *those* new guys if I didn't back it up with some hard evidence.

    I'm finding it hard to wait for this phone. I really should have gotten myself a job at BB.

    According to the other best buy rumor thread, a HP rep turned up with a Pre3 unit. Maybe this is a picture of a best buy employee holding a HP reps phone.

    I've been asking for updates on the 3 for a while. I'm not 100% certain, but I do believe that this isn't the Reps phone. My friend said that the HP guy was in early last week.

    I am however trying to find out more. I will let you know here when I do.

    why would a store demo have a passcode unlock?

    Interesting stuff Thx.

    @picture: That's definitely the unlock-screen. Note that there are two buttons at the bottom (SOS and "OK").

    agree, definitely the unlock screen. don't use it myself so was unfamiliar. i'm just glad the HP has even sent a rep to the store, even if it's not released soon.

    So Bust Buy UK has been open for over two hours...

    Any news?

    Maybe one of you UKers could simply call: Customer Service: 0800 380 00 00
