Together with today's announcement of the new HP webOS 2.0, HP also announced a new smartphone - the Palm Pre 2 (which follows the Palm Pre and the Palm Pre Plus). The Pre 2, which will be available in a CDMA version as well as a UMTS version straight from the launch, is the first Palm smartphone with a 1 GHz CPU and features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a glass screen and a sleeker - but still Pre-looking - streamlined design that gives users a combination of a vivid 3.1 HVGA touchscreen and a slide-out keyboard. The GSM/UMTS version of the Palm Pre 2 features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz but lacks support for HSUPA.

It comes with WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and A2DP support, a built-in GPS, an accelerometer, ambient light and proximity sensor and features 16 GB of inbuilt memory which can neither expanded nor changed.
At a size of 59.6 x 100.7 x 16.9 mm, the HP Pre 2 weights 145 grams.

The Palm Pre 2 with webOS 2.0 will be available coming Friday in France from SFR and is scheduled to be available in the coming months in the United States from Verizon Wireless and in Canada. Furthermore, American developers will be able to purchase an unlocked UMTS version of Pre 2 in the United States.

Cheers ~ Arne
