Rumor: HP Pre 3 not coming to Sprint

Though Sprint was the first to offer the original Palm Pre, it looks like its love affair with WebOS might be over.

The HP Pre 3 is expected to be one of the summer's biggest smartphone releases, but it looks like the WebOS-based smartphone won't be coming to at least one of the major U.S. carriers.

According to This is My Next, Sprint will not offer the Pre 3 and there's even some doubt over Sprint and HP's future together. The source did not provide any details on what brought about the decision, but some think it might have to do with the disappointing sales of the original Palm Pre, which exclusively launched with Sprint in June 2009.

However, it's important to remember that this is just a rumor at this point, and not surprisingly, Sprint would not comment on the story. Out of curiosity, though, how many Sprint customers out there have been holding out for the Pre 3?
