HP announced a new handset for the Pre range – the HP Pre 3. Essentially it’s what Palm Pre 2 should’ve been. Bigger, faster and higher resolution screen. The screen size was bumped to 3.6 inch and resolution to 800 x 480 pixels. For those who complained that Palm Pre had a slow processor shouldn’t have any problems with HP Pre 3 as it is powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm MSM 8×55 processor. Other features include 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and 720p HD video recording, front-facing camera, WiFi b/g/n, bluetooth 2.1, a-GPS, 1230 mAh battery and 512MB RAM. Naturally it will run the webOS 2.2. Two options will be available this summer – 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage. No word on pricing yet. Check the hands-on video, photos, accessories and full specifications after the break.
