HP Pre3 now expected to ship in August, at least in Europe
The UK HP Palm website has been updated with some new information regarding the release of the Pre3, which is now expected to ship at some point this month. However, the Devil hides in the fine print – a disclaimer clarifies that the smartphone's estimated launch timeframe is still “a subject to confirmation.”
Perhaps, HP is simply waiting for the right time to launch the Pre3 and wants to make sure that the App Catalog has plenty of software tailored to run on the device. Or could there be another reason that we have yet to find out about preventing the smartphone from launching in a timely manner?
Whatever the case may be, those of you who wish to pre-order an HP Pre3 can do so right now and be among the first who will get their hands on the webOS-powered smartphone. As for the Pre3's arrival to the US, it still seems like we will most likely have to wait until later this fall. Until then, we will probably get plenty of Pre3 video previews to tease ourselves with.
