    Like many of you, I'm devastated. Waiting for the 3 and clicking refresh has been a daily ritual. But the big question for those of us who have been waiting patiently for a Palm3 is what the heck do we get now? Touchscreen is a no go and horitzontal keyboard is a pain in the ****. So the only choice seems to be a new Blackberry Torch 8310.

    But do we really want to go from a dead brand to a dying one with an inferior OS? And for those of us under Verizon contract, it's not even an option.

    Anyone know whether anyone else is ready to do a vertical slider? I'd kill for a vertical sliding iPhone. Where do we go now if a vertical keyboard is a must?

    welp you could always rush out for an HTC Status. Its got a vertical keyboard and you'll fit right in with the teens in the mall who are ashamed to be seen with a Status.

    edit. Sorry the Status is not a slider.

    I am just going to get a DOA Pre3 and ride the dead horse while other people are beating it.

    You can't really believe that any US carrier is going to pick up the Pre3?

    Hi all,

    I'm with you, if we are forced from webOS, then I'm not going to BB with another dead OS and and other dying manufacturer!

    I don't know what to do, but a keyboard is a must...after almost 11 years with a keyboard, I not typing on a slab of glass!

    take care,

    Jay

    I've wasyed enough time and money waiting on a pipe dream. I can say the same about dating, but atleast one ofthe two will make me happy when it happens! webOS is about as dead as Andy Kaufman, it will become a myth!

    It doesn't matter to me if they do or not... honestly I'd prefer an unlocked device anyway... At this point you can buy an Unlocked Pre3 right now..

    You can get a Droid Pro on vzw right now. It is a BB layout with android (don't really know anything else about it.)

    To anyone open to a landscape slider, I really enjoy the Droid 3. Check it out if you're inclined.

    Grab a horizontal slider so you'll at least get a good phone with a successful OS. Don't bother with BB, you will just be going down the same road.

    Please try a virtual keyboard like Swype, it might make you a believer.

    Btw, I have a Evo Shift and I never use the physical keyboard. Thought I would need it, but you can't beat the virtual keyboard. Android isn't a good substitute for WebOS, but where do you go? Sad day.

    Spice is as powerful as a Pixi. You're better off getting any clearance Veers and use them until HP shuts down the services.
    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.

    It's sold here in Canada from Mobilicity, and will work with T-Mobile with 3G after unlocking.

    I'm sorry, but virtual keyboards make me sick. Don't give me that look, I've used both iPhone and Android.

    If they would work on AT&T and HP sells them unlocked, I'd get one to replace my Sprint Pre.

    Actually I just did today, my coworker has a 9900.

    I didn't like it that much, I actually preferred my Veer, or even my other coworker's 8520. I like the gap and the individual feel of the keys.

    That was the phone that a recent Yahoo/Appolicious article mentioned that professional users should look into.

    It doesn't look too bad...it would look better with webOS on it though.

    I think when you begin to see how much you will have to sacrifice when trying to find a portrait slider you will come to realize that a slab phone might not be such a bad thing to try.
