    The more I read the few lucky friends in Europe with their Pre 3, the more saddened I feel b/c I won't get this phone and this was finally the one great webOS phone that got shoved into oblivion. I've wanted this phone for so long! (as with everyone else). Yes, I'm in the US...

    Instead, I scored a 32gb TP. Never planned on buying one in the beginning but now that I have it, it's a nice to have. But it's not Pre 3!!!

    I pretty much agree. The Touchpad is nice, especially discounted, but eh, if it came down to it I could easily do without it. I honestly probably prefer my Windows 7 tablet anyway.

    My Pre 2 seems to be barely holding it together and I was holding out for a Pre 3, and that's what I'm really dreading having to switch to another operating system for.

    I'm with you on this...very sad I can't get a Pre 3 on Verizon or Sprint. Waited a long time for it, too....
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    I have no use for a touchpad either. It doesn't fit in my pocket.

    My Pre Plus' screen's bottom half isn't working darn

    I sadly gave up waiting for a Pre 3 when I learned Sprint wasn't interested in it. Maybe by the time my Pre- gives out, some company will have come up with a smartphone that has a more WebOS looking UI. WebOS features are slowly being built into other OS.

    yeah, it sucks as that is the device I had been waiting for and now won't get. I am making the switch to windows phone (got a dell venue pro for $269 unlocked without contract). It aint webos, but my other choices would be android or blackberry, and that aint happening. Its as close to a pre 3 as I can get.
    iPhone 4s 64gb for personal, at&t Prē 3 for business. Best of both worlds.

    Eh. A one-time big expense doesn't bother me. It's the more-than-triple I'd be paying for my phone bill every month for the rest of eternity. Not to mention the six or seven people on my plan I'd screw over... I needed it to come to Sprint, which was always a pipe dream.

    the burst of Pre3 activity is just because it's new and everything is being adapted to support it. So far it's not really getting anything that the Pre2 doesn't already have.

    the Pre1 with 1.4.5 probably still has more patches than the Pre2.

    Same here which is why i've just sold my Touchpad to a forum member and will march on solely with the Pre3.

    Agreed.

    TP is nice - and sure for 100-200 I would get one. But not really much interested in a tablet.

    But Pre3 is what I was waiting for

    You can hunt for a UK QWERTY on ebay - as long as you are on one of the US GSM carriers.

    Pre3 in Germany are so rare and sought after that they sell at 600 Euro (*original* retail was 450) on ebay.de (and that's for UK QWERTY and FR AZERTY models - not DE QWERTZ).

    It seems that UK and France were the only countries with decent stocks that ever got into retail channels. And both are rapidly cleaning out too.

    Even the Veers have been sold out by now. Prices going up again as demand is much greater than supply.
    Pre -> Pre3 & TP32 -> Nexus 5

    Well, 3.6 inch screen plus faster processor and Bluetooth MAP protocol(WebOS 2.2 should have it but I'm not sure) are what I wanted, plus I also wanted full HSPA+ on AT&T. I need my phone to work inside buildings, and the lack of frequencies means a European Pre 3 just wouldn't do it for me.

    So, I had been waiting for the Pre 3 for a long time, they announced it, and I waited, then it got cancelled because HP has a bunch of f*cktards running the company. So, I'm a bit upset. Veer launch before Pre 3? *** were they thinking?!?

    I would gladly trade both my TouchPad 32GB and my Pre2 Unlocked for an ATT Pre3.

    Yesterday, I stopped bidding on Ebay for a Pre3 from the UK when the price got over $500. The item sold for $615. I don't want the device that badly.

    I'm waiting to see if 2.2 ends up on a frankenpre, then I'm going for that. At least I'll have more storage and won't pay the premium smartphone fees.

    I despair of ever having a new webOS phone. The Preł was exactly the phone I wanted. At this point, I'd take a Veer, but they are also nowhere to be found. My TouchPad is fine, my Pre- soldiers on, but the Preł would have been amazing.
