    I hope Sprint has something nice in store for themselves well before then. As it stands now, every carrier came out of CES with 2-4 big phones available now or coming soon.

    Meanwhile, Sprint is doing some LG crap with Brooke Shields where they'll announce the LOTUS F'N TWO and maybe - maybe - an LG Android handset that popped up in their inventory systems a bit ago.

    I expect their quarterly numbers to get worse since they're going to start losing some of the few high ARPU smartphone diehards they still have. I'm not going anywhere as long as their family plans rock, but it's not looking pretty.

    Pre MAX? With WiMAX? Frankly I don't need WiMAX on a phone, but they'll have to one up ATT/Verizon.

    I'm sure something will be new by June on Sprint. It's the normal cycle anyway for yearly releases.

    Why June? Sprint should launch its updated Pre shortly after VZ does.
    Current Phone(s): HTC Inspire "4G" & Pre 2

    Many of us will be eligible for upgrade then.

    i'd bet verizon only has the pre plus exclusive for a short amount of time. I dont see palm manufacturing 2 different versions of the phone with such minor changes

    June is when Premier customers who bought the Pre on day 1 can upgrade.

    Sprints also got the 4G/3G WiMAX that seems to be getting lots of happiness from people using it, even the ones inside the casino are getting awesome reception and works fairly well.

    In actuality, this is how I view the situation. I like my Pre, but the ecosystem is certainly not growing in the strides it needs to in order to be sustainable. Palm hasn't enticed me to move to Verizon by making the Pre Plus exclusive to Verizon, and even if I were to move to Verizon I most certainly would be moving to an Android device instead. Who would want to buy a Pre Plus when you can choose between the Droid or the Nexus One? In terms of build quality alone there isn't really any contest.

    The Prevent? Preventing Sprint customers from jumping ship? lol I'm staying with Sprint, luv their rates!

    I understand that June is the one year anniverseary. But Sprint needs a phone for that 4G network. Palm needs hardware that competes in 2010 and a larger screen (a third highest end product). Add those both together.

    I don't really need a larger screen, but for sure the gamers and such do.

    yea it was be sick if we got a webos phone with no keyboard on 4g in june. Something that looks like nexus. I think thats where palm will be going next anyway. They need a phone without a keyboard next.

    Boo.. I'll buy two with a landscape keyboard before I buy one without a keyboard at all.
