    Thanks. Any pics of the top part of the device? My speaker has a rattle at louder volumes and I'd like to know how easy it is to get to.

    Thanks for the teardown pictures, I made a few wallpapers out of it.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    I will try to figure out how to dismantle the slider and will post photos probably early next week.
    A few photos of the rest of Pre 3 will follow including slider

    Here are some more photos of Pre 3: slider, speakerphone assembly and speakerphone speaker (both sides). I will check tomorrow if this speaker is same as for any other phone or it was made special for HP.

    You can check this document "HP Pre 3_Product End-of-Life Disassembly instructions" at http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitiz...1178234125.pdf

    Photos are not high quality but they are still OK. Mirror can be removed by hair blower. Heat willsoften the glue.

    @Sumy thanks for donating your Pre3 "to science" lol...

    Does this mean now that we have semi-hi-res photos of a disassembled Pre3 that we can start identifying what specific chips form part of the logic board? And that we can build a list so that we can hunt for open source drivers that are currently available, which would then help our efforts to port open webOS to Pre3?

    Work mobes: Palm Treo 650 > Palm Treo Pro > O2 Palm Pre- > Palm Pixi+ > Pre 2 > Pre 3
    Home mobes: Sony Ericsson K610 > Sony Ericsson W910 > iPhone 3GS > Verizon GSMed FrankenPre+ > HTC Desire HD > HTC Evo 3D > White HTC Sensation XE
    Tablet: HP TouchPad 32GB / ASUS TF101

    I'm curious if the volume buttons can be easily replaced, as mine aren't working. I don't see them in the picture or the HP teardown document.
