coming from a Pre as well. I have mine pre-ordered at the Sprint store and will get it Friday. I debated about ordering it on line, but decided I would just stick with the store.
I too was waiting for a new WebOS phone, but decided to just give that up as it looks like it is not happening any time in the near future.

My wife and I have Pre phones. I have had mine since the month it came out and before that I have had palm hardware for the last 10 year. I have been loyal to the company for many years, and to be honest the only reason im with sprint is because of palm. With all that said it is time to move on. I will miss palm but am nervous and very excited about the android apps and the customizable platform and the capability of the phone. 3 more days.

Day 1 guy here, too. I had high hopes. I even still was optimistic when Feb 9th rolled around. But by May, it was clear Sprint wouldn't see anything soon, and I needed a replacement. I wasn't going to jump carriers either.
The only thing that will stop me is if I can't deal w/ the larger sized phone... in that case, to the Nexus S I go. I do hope HP can make webOS work. I would like to be able to come back to a webOS phone one day

Early Palm Pre adopter here. I had a cingular 8125, Blackberry, and a First Gen iPhone before the Pre.
I worked for Apple for two years, and constantly got made fun of for having the Pre, rightfully so. I did like that nobody ever bothered to pickup my phone and play with it, never had a passcode lock on it.
Problems with the Pre, squeeky keyboard (fixed w/ electrical tape), bad pixel in screen, power button spring (Fixed with white paper stuffed down in the hole), and terrible laggy performance all around.
Does anyone else remember someone at HP saying that HP would have some offerings for Palm Pre early adopters?
I plan on getting the Evo 3D and never looking back.

Waited in line opening day to get the Pre, had a Treo 650 before. (And a Zire 71, Handspring Visor Platinum, etc.)
Come tomorrow, this will be the first time in over 10 years without me carrying around a PalmOS device in my pocket on a day-to-day basis. And I don't miss it.
I wouldn't listen to anything HP said. They also said they'd never reveal a device too early ever again, and did the Pre 3 mishap. Also, remember back in February 2010, we were supposed to have Adobe Flash running. HA! What a putz I was for believing that.
Also, anyone check the trade-in price on the Pre for Sprint?
I think I'll go with my wife's idea of shooting a 3D video of me driving over it in my truck. I still keep my Zire, Handspring and Treo in a drawer, for whatever reason, but I do not want the Pre next to those devices.

I bought my Pre-Piece-of-Cheap-Plastic-minus in September 2009. At first I used to like it, it was easy to use but as I become more and more familiar with Android and iOS I began to question the decision I made to buy the Pre-. Now I hate it so much, it is useless, it is slow. WebOS has no usefull apps at all. Palm and HP abandoned us. They used to have my full support but after not hearing anything new about WebOS devices I became tired of waiting.
I will NEVER buy another WebOS phone. It has been a terrible phone. My Pre phone was replaced about 9 times, or around there, to be honest I have lost count.
I was thinking about waiting until this fall to get the iPhone on Sprint if the rumor turned out to be true, but with the iPhone most likely being a 3G phone I have decided that I will go with the EVO 3D plus I already own a 4th Generation iPod touch. I will be using my EVO 3D to tether my iPod Touch and that way I will be getting the best of both worlds!!!
I will, however, have to wait until July 1st as that is the day I am elegible for the upgrade! Waiting a week after the realease date will definitely be worth it!
ANDROID HERE I COME!
Well rumor is that HP may license out webos to other phone manufactures, so ya never know HTC might have a webos device some day...Skywalker to Obi-wan: I think he's searching for his former master, but I've never seen such devotion in ANDROID before...

I think is pretty safe to say that everyone here got tired of waiting...
Just saw this about Sprint and LightSquare getting together for LTE and I know the story is off topic, but you guys have to look at the comments. There is so much frustration on the comments, can't see too many people sticking around

Had my Pre when it first came out, will be making the switch this Friday @ Best Buy. I really loved the Pre when it came out. WebOS is a very good operating system. Just wished they could've kept up w/ technology. I think I'll really miss the ability to "flick" through the cards to see the apps I've got open. My wife got the Epic 4g and she loves it. So it won't be too difficult to adapt to Android. I am looking forward to it...

EDIT: Or should I say, a release day has been announced. Bummed that H/Palm dropped the ball, but at the same time pumped for such a powerful device! :-)

I voted yes although I am currently using an EVO. The only reason I'm using an EVO is cuz my pre needed repaired and best buy couldn't do it so they swapped it for an EVO. I got the buy back program and will be trading in my EVO for the 3d. And will have some extra cash to spare after taxes.--Nextel Blackberry 7520 -> Sprint Treo 700p -> Sprint Treo 755p -> Sprint Pre -> Evo 4G-> Evo 3D

I too am moving over from the Pre. The phone had such potential, and I still think the OS is wonderfully done. The folks over at WebOS-Internals can match the very best of XDA line for line. But there is no carrier announcement or release date for the Pre3. And, after waiting two years for flash, for the microphone api to be included in the sdk, and for the phone to hit developer critical mass, I'm done with webOS for the foreseeable future. I've been reading up quite a bit on Android OS, and while there'll be a bit of a learning curve, I'm excited about all the potential for hacking my device, especially with such strong hardware backing it.
