No HP Pre 3 in the US, just stinks!

Recommended Posts

I was really holding out for this phone on Verizon!

Up until June this year, I was a 15 year customer of Sprint. Used to have Nextel phones most of those years, but went to a Palm Pre on opening day in June 2009, from Radio Shack. That's when I grew into webOS. Since Sprint clearly was not going to get anymore webOS phones, I followed the blogs and eagerly awaited news on the pre 3 to hit Verizon. All signs were that it would.

Then Verizon announced it was moving away from their unlimited data at $29.99! I fealt the sense of urgency to get on Verizon to be grandfathered in. My contract with Sprint was over. So I went into a phone plan without a contract after I bought a Verizon Pixi Plus off of Amazon for $45. Now I'm on Verizon with this phone, no contract....waiting. Now no HP pre 3 at all! This just sucks all together...what to do now.

I ordered a Verizon pre 2 during the firesale, but that may now be cancelled hp tells me, due to their overselling.

Yep I'm a 10 year vet of sprint myself and as of this month I'm off contract . I will be hunting down a pre³ if possible and moving to AT&T if I find one . There was most certainly a Verizon pre³ that was in testing , but the phone companies dropped support as soon as HP said they were going to stop making devices. Also the pre³ was within 2 weeks of being put up for sale on both AT&T and verizon . Its just to bad !!

I think the ATT phones were GSM that passed through the FCC, so they can be sold in Europe, no?

    • [pivotCE]The New Palm phone is revealed.

      There’s a new Palm phone. It’s due to be released next month. Now, if you are a long time Palm enthusiast (and reader of this blog) you will no doubt be telling your heart not to beat too quickly because to put it mildly, things have not worked out well in the past. We already knew that TCL / Alcatel had bought the brand (only). The possibility of a new phone running webOS was dismissed. The speculation on the webOs Nation forum was that we would be seeing a standard Android slab with the Palm
