Cam from TodaysiPhone makes a guest appearance on PhoneDog to show off his shiny new HP Pre 3!  Featuring a 1.4 GHz processor, 3.6-inch display, and webOS 2.2, it's a decent device.  Too bad HP isn't making it (or webOS, for that matter) anymore.  It's nearly impossible to find now, but Cam got his just in time to do a quick unboxing.  Farewell webOS, we'll miss you!

Melody Sanko
Melody Sanko I enjoy the webOS operating system, I like my Pixi, I was rather holding out for a Pre3, but now, who knows? I'm looking at the Motorola Photo since your review said it has such great reception and I live in one of those fringe/dead areas with the pixi.

Josh Evans
Josh Evans I really like the Pre, but not knowing whether it will be supported in the future or updated puts me in the mind of the Kin series from Microsoft. So I probably would not.
Shlomo Hayut
Shlomo Hayut Wouldn't touch hp....they sell junk
Domagoj Delimar
Domagoj Delimar Right now, probably. I need something to get me through until somebody else starts making new webOS devices. However, if H-P announced a manufacturer that would make them, I'd wait to see what they offer. I'm still using the original Palm Pre.
Mandel McGuire
