HP is killing everything WebOS-related left and right, and the Pre 3 is no exception. It will see release in "limited markets," just like HP said earlier today. It won't come stateside.
Former Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein, the guy who resurrected Palm, is leaving HP's Palm unit (no longer called Palm, to boot). Taking over is Stephen DeWitt, HP's U.S. computer overlord. This isn't good for webOS. In fact, It's terrible.
Playboy seems to have a major scoop on the rest of us. Their latest issue lists the Touchpad and Pre 3 as being $500 and $200, respectively. With the release nearing, take this with a grain of salt. [Engadget]
HP's webOS devices are finally here: The Touchpad tablet—an sleek affair with iPad-competitive specs—as well as the bigger, badder Pre 3, and a teeny, Pixi-esque slider called the Veer.
Palm/HP is targeting the Pre 3 as a "business"-class phone, even though it's got the same body shape as the previous Pres. It has their largest keyboard, a larger 3.6-inch 480x800 display, and a 5-megapixel camera.
