Sprint Not Getting Pre 3…Oh Well


Sprint debuted the Palm Pre in June 2009 with an exclusive that lasted quite sometime before it was brougut over to Verizon Wireless.  Although there were lines out the door leading up to its release the thunder quickly died down.  So-so battery life and a small app store plagued the device after the initial hype wore off.

Fast forward to 2011 and the Android powered HTC Evo 4G has become Spring’s best selling smartphone of all time. Skipping over the lackluster launch of the Evo Shift 4G and the next follow up to the original Evo 4G , the Evo 3D looks like it will be equally as popular.

A source close to Sprint and HP told This Is My Next, that Sprint won’t be getting the new Pre 3 or any our WebOS product from HP.  HP debuted the HP Veer with AT&T earlier this year and HP could continue to send new devices to just AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

With Sprints commitment to Android there seems to be no love lost. Sprint customers.who really want a new WebOS device will have to switch carriers, or operating systems.
