    Engadget just posted an article about sprint and bloatware. That is nice and all, but the slide "Guiding Principals to defining Portfolio categories and slots" behind the main speaker, Fared Adib, had three operating systems under the title of "Cover Operating Systems". Win7, BB, and Andriod...

    Not a sprint rep or an official word but not a good sign.

    Edit:
    HP is nowhere to be found under their "vendor balancing either'.

    For those that say its because nothing has been announced. Notice the LTE on the slide as well.

    Really I don't see the association here. Didn't we all learn there would be no Pre 3 on Sprint a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away?

    I don't believe I have ever quoted myself before, but I must point out that it is quite the coincidence that all these men are in fact dead right now.

    All this in a thread about zombies.

    more and more omissions of proof of new thE webOS phones on sprint.

    that, or HP and Sprint have one heckuva surprise up their sleeve.

    Reading between the lines:

    You are saying that Sprint is going to carry a webOS device named the Zombie.

    Tag line: "Back from the dead"


    YEEEEEHAAAAAA!!!

    Launching October 31st!!!



    Thanks for this confirmation!!!

    I heard Sprint is changing over all of their data services to The webOS WiMax.

    ....of course the slide shown also does not Apple on it. One would have to think Sprint will need to move beyond Blackberry, WP7, and Android. Two of those OS's are stuck or declining in mindshare (as is webOS unfortunately), so it would make sense that they would be tinkering with at least one more OS not shown on that slide.

    Umm, what about the PS listed below the article? One can only have hope...that is all that is left.

    According to this image from Engadget WebOS or HP is not listed anywhere on the slide. The only glimmer of hope is the "new vendors" bullet on the bottom. Sprint totally left WebOS out of their gameplan.

    Take that for what you will.

    Beat to it again! I was just about to post this.

    Yeah folks, this doesn't look good for webOS. There's no sight of a webOS device, or HP/Palm logo in sight. I'm glad I moved on to a Franken Pre 2 instead of waiting & hoping the Pre 3 lands on Sprint.

    This is definitely my game plan. I'm just looking for a Pre2 to show up in the Marketplace with the right price and bad ESN.

    "P.S. - This slide was just one of many, and is definitely not a comprehensive view of partners and plans. We were specifically informed to not read into it as a solo slide."

    Found at the bottom of the Engadget article you got the pic from.

    Well, that pretty much shuts this down then lol. I never read the article. Just saw the picture on the front page.

    I don't buy that little P.S. at the end of the article. If they can show me a slide that has a HP/Palm webOS logo or phone, then I'd believe that the slide doesn't represent "A Comprehensive view of partners & plans".

    However, if I walk into a Sprint store (or go to their website), all I will see is Android, WP7 & Blalckberry; & coincidentally those are the only phones & logos I see on that slide. I'll believe my eyes & not some disclaimer saying "not to read into it as a solo slide".

    Sprint is done with webOS (at least for the foreseeable future). Maybe they'll pick up a 3g/4g TouchPad, and future webOS phones that are released next year. But for right now, I'd say it's time to move on folks!

    Oy...

    You know, they may not be disclosing information from HP per HP's request...

    If, for instance, there are devices that HP has not announced yet (lets not go there, shall we?), they sure as heck arent going to let another company announce even a hint of them first.

    Take that for what you will.

    Seriously.
