If you made a venn diagram of Sprint users and webOS lovers, a significant portion of PreCentral members would fall in the intersection of the two. So the lack of a newer Palm Pre - either the Plus or the Pre 2 - has been pretty vexing. Enter Rich Dunbar, who has posted a full 15-step photo guide of how to take apart both a Sprint Pre, grabbing its communication board, and inserting it into a Pre Plus or Pre 2. Then you can run a script to get your device fully operational with webOS 2.0.1.

It's not an official device from HP, but it is a faster and software-upgraded Pre on your network of choice. Anybody taking the plunge?
