Palm Pre 2 – can this WebOS phone compete

Gadgetmania
12 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Palm Pre 2 is already available on sale for Verizon’s network or unlocked from Palm and other resellers. The $450 unlocked price is pretty good, so if you want a business phone that looks great and can do anything a Blackberry can (only better), then you should definitely consider the Pre 2 as your next smartphone.

  • Conclusion: HP has big plans for WebOS, but the Palm Pre 2 feels like a throwback to 2010. It's fun, but far from cutting edge.
  • Pros: Pleasantly compact. Bright, responsive display. Fast, fluid OS. Mobile hotspot.
  • Cons: Weak app catalog. Hardware specs are still nothing special. No voice dialing. Weak speakerphone.

  • Conclusion: Like many people who have used webOS, I think that Palm/HP is onto a winner with webOS but until they offer a compelling app platform for developers, good hardware for users and market the hell out of the handset, I cannot see webOS ever being a success.

  • Conclusion: Overall, there is a lot to like about the Palm Pre 2 . We like its overall shape, though its design is a bit dated now, but it’s easy to hold and feels comfortable in the hand. The improved webOS 2.0 software and 1GHz processor makes the Pre 2 feel faster and more powerful than the Pre Plus .
  • Pros: Easy to use webOS 2.0 user interface, Multitasking ‘card’ visualization, Fast 1GHz processor, 16GB internal memory
  • Cons: Limited app downloads, QWERTY keyboard is still too small, Camera lacks autofocus

  • Conclusion: We like the Palm Pre 2 a lot, and while we aren't convinced it's going to be a market hit, would very much like it to be. It is a well sized, ergonomic handset with a great UI and an incredibly intuitive phonebook experience thanks to the Just Type functionality. It also offers enough fun to keep you entertained on a commute home and is very well connected.
  • Pros: Easy to call / text / email quickly with Just Type, Superb at multi-tasking support and visualization, Fantastic Facebook app
  • Cons: Poor camera / camera options, Occasional stability issues, Limited app support
