According to HP said the Veer will need a software update, but the Pre3 is ready to go out of the box for sharing calls. They are using Bluetooth to connect together, so you can just use a wifi TouchPad if you want.
nah, the call forwarding goes through bluetooth... in fact, by the end of the month i believe webosinternals and other developers will work on a patch that u will be able to at least transfer calls from any phone. texts seem to be a bit more complicated though

I asked that specific question at the announcement, and they said it required support to be added to the phone, so it would only be for webos phones. But that was february, so perhaps google will put the right hooks into android... I'd be ok with that.
An HP rep told me today that only the 'newer' phones would work with the cal transfer to the bluetooth. I asked if any phone w/ bluetooth would work and she said it had to be a webOS phone. I still will still try it out w/ my pre- anyway. They might just be trying to sell a new phone.
On the other hand, the pre- will not transfer texts to the TP because they will have different profiles.
