It’s been relatively quite in the Palm camp since the acquisition by HP but Palm (HP) is back in the smartphone game with beefed-up Palm Pre 2 running the latest webOS 2.0 (HP webOS) operating system. We have always had a soft spot for both Palm Pre and Pixi as they look great and the webOS is a very smooth and polished operating system. The only reason we haven’t purchased one was that it is exclusive to 02 in the UK.
In terms if upgrades over the first generation Palm Pre you will get 1 GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, glass display and a sleeker, stylish design. In a nutshell it is a faster and slimmer Palm Pre. Overall a solid device from Palm (HP) but most think it is to little to late.
