    Give us some time and I think you will really like the direction where going on. All I ask is that you bear with us. There are plenty of Tegra based devices available on the market today, and we think its a good stepping stone. We understand the impact our project has on lovers of webOS. But, the system has to evolve so its utility can as well. We have to be ableand willing to make some mistakes to get to this achievement.

    And more importantly, Open Source is great as long as you don't curate development. I have friends that pirate Android apps that they find have the most utility. I have even done the same. Non-vetting markets will always have that affect on people. Platforms that generate revenue = usually not open. You can chalk Android fame up to device market spam, and yet Android devices are still mostly terrible.

    So I guess I can ignore your overtures for now, you and your plan have become irrelevant to me. This is not to say I don't encourage your development, but you won't be working in a space that can help me nor will I ever be able to contribute with testing, prototypes, etc. I suspect some other Sprint users might agree.
    We don't want to make plans for a carrier that's losing subscribers left and right. GSM greatly outweighs the other options. I agree, Sprint is good at being cheap.

    Also, some of us were working on designing products before HP announced the Opening webOS. It's not like the hardware concern popped up overnight.

    I will be watching this. Skeptical though. Either your honest or just feed on peoples false hopes. Just post a video and most skepticism will go away.

    Hardware wise... I really like the pre 2 I just got. I like the form factor. I don't mind not so thin phones, and I really want a physical keyboard and I love the gesture area. A 4.5 inch phone is a little big for my taste. Also, I wont pay more than $200 for a phone.

    WebOS wise... I am new to webOs as I just got a pre 2. I don't have much to say besides first impressions. Its easy to use. I like how open it is. I don't even have it activated yet and I feel like I don't need to.

    I beg of you to set you skepticism aside. I am the human representation of the wants and needs for a third viable option. I will get information delivered to you as soon as it's available. We have major plans for the keyboard that are better implemented with a strong software backing.

    I find you very condescending and rude. You plan to attract support with your behavior?

    I can tell you that one of the most pleasant aspects being involved with Palm before and after webOS was the general professionalism, politeness, teamwork and support of the community. You do not seem to represent any of that with the way you have presented yourself.
    Sprint since 01/06/99: Sanyo SCP-4500 -> Audiovox PPC-6700 -> Palm Treo 755p -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre 1.4.5 -> Jailbroken iPhone 4s

    As much as I like sprint I would say its a mistake to build a phone for sprint. I'm sure that sprint is convinced that webOS will never sell and they are looking for quick bucks. I read in the WSJ that they paid apple an hefty price to carry the iphone and the board is still not happy.

    If the mighty hp couldn't convince them to carry webOS phones, how will anyone else? Best he could do is make a phone that has the right internals to make something like a franken pre possible

    Sprint and Palm do not correlate. And If you didn't notice, It was Sprint that gave up on us WebOS Users in the first place. I guarantee they will not want any part of this movement. Sprint doesn't make Palm or the WebOS community we do.

    I'm sorry that there are no Sprint plans. CDMA in a world of GSM is just not feasibly in our best interest or the community. Keep in mind, you can use Pre-paid on any GSM carrier as well. It's just a better strategy.

    You do realize the largest carrier in the US is also CDMA. That makes two of the three largest, and US Cellular is pretty big too. Must not be too bad.

    Sprint has been adding customer each and every quarter for quite some time now. T-mobile(GSM) is the one hemorrhaging customers left and right. Just last month they had a net loss of 800,000 contract customers and the bleeding has been going on for a year a half. Sprint had a net add of 519,000 contract customers last quarter. You can give an excuse for CDMA and not liking Sprint but your facts are incorrect.

    US Cellular has 6.1 million customers. I would never use the words "pretty big" to describe that small of a carrier. Metro PCS has many more customers than they do and they are also very small.

    Regardless of how many customers Sprint is gaining, the network just doesn't support that many users. The argument for Verizon I addressed, but Sprint is a third tier carrier for a reason. Also, the radios for CDMA is the number one reason. We have to have something that everyone can use without a PCS Provisioned Account. This way any and everyone can use the device.

    You guys are so gullible it's unbelievable.

    Even 15 minutes on google tells you that a guy who is spending his team repairing PCs off what appears to be an old kitchen table (and a living is a living so I'm not knocking that) in the back of his house is not going to be able to finance this or have the licensing deals he claims.

    I didn't spend my time "fixing computers on a kitchen table", I created the business model for the company. The hummingbird tech isn't new and it's license by a number of companies. And that mediocre business that you described, is still the only tech repair facility that fixes Xbox 360 consoles in St. Louis.

    All we want to do is something new and cool. Nothing more and nothing less. Hopefully, whatever background you assume I have, doesn't get in the way of making an amazing product.
