The Palm Pre 2 is HP’s first webOS smartphone since acquiring Palm. It’s pretty much a splitting image of its namesake predecessor, but it does come with several improvements.
Compared to the Palm Pre, this QWERTY phone now features double the RAM (512MB), double the internal memory (16GB), a better 5-megapixel camera with video recording capabilities, a more powerful 1GHz processor, and a Gorilla Glass protected touchscreen display. It also runs on the new webOS 2.0 platform.
In a nutshell, the Palm Pre 2 is basically a modest upgrade to the Pre instead of a being a completely new webOS smartphone. Sure the new webOS helps improve over-all performance, but it doesn’t really provide anything new to get excited about, and still lacks support from 3rd party app developers.
The Palm Pre won't likely entice current Pre users to upgrade, however it does look like a good option for fans of Palm's webOS or for those seeking a physical QWERTY keyboard.
