Orange UK turns on its HP Pre 3 support page, still no launch date
As we recently reported, the US launch of the HP Pre 3 has been pushed back to September 18th, according to a leaked internal document, from an earlier September 4th release. At the same time, the document notes that HP's Palm unit said that the UK division has had delays receiving the final product from its supplier. This probably explains why there is no launch date posted on Orange's web site.
The launch delays for both the US and UK versions of the HP Pre 3 are just the latest in a series of missteps that has prevented this model from ever reaching its true potential. From the moment it was introduced at CES in January 2009 and appointed the heir apparent to the Apple iPhone, to its current position as a smartphone afterthought, the Pre has been about missed opportunities, miscalculations, and marketing mistakes. While the bump up in specs is really nice, is it enough to get Apple iPhone and Android users to drop their current touchscreen phone and replace it with the HP Pre 3?

I think companies and mixing up the specs of the TP and the Pre3, as far as I know the Pre3 has a 1.4 GHz Scorpion

I don't think the dual core note is correct, but really it doesn't matter. What matter is how the phone performs. In the french video review that cropped up a couple of weeks ago the Pre3 performs great! No lag, nice and zippy.
Plus, if you *really* want to beef up the processor, Internalz will allow you to over clock it a week or so after release. ;)
