I do, to me it was a bitter sweet experience. I imagine it was similar to a Maryland Basketball fan watching the news of Len Bias's passing. All that potential, and seemingly going to wait.

The Pre Plus was what the Pre should've been, a phone actually capable of running the OS smoothly and stably and without an oreo twist.
My hope is that unlike the TouchPad which looks very much to be a 1st gen buggy product, the Pre3 builds upon its predecessors and is polished as a 3rd gen phone should be. I liked a lot about the Pre2 and would've been tempted to pick one up now that my contract is expired if not for the Pre3. If they improve on all the things the Pre3 seems to have going for it, its going to be an excellent phone. If it hits Sprint, I'll likely pick it up and go with the Pre3 and iPad2 until next year when we see hopefully a TouchPad that's specs and polish matches its top of the line price. If it doesn't hit sprint, I think I may finally retire my Pre (Though keep it as a backup, just can't let this thing go) and give Windows Phone a shot off contract until next year.
My hope is history continues itself and that similar to the TP launch being similar to the Pre's launch, that the TP+ equivalent will be similar to the Pre+. That appears to be the time I'll buy in.
