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...
Excerpt: Aaron does a review of the Palm Pre 2 , HP and Palm's newest webOS 2.0-powered smartphone. It packs a 1 GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and offers a few improvements over the form factor that you know and love from the original device.
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
Summary: HP just announced the update to webOS operating system — webOS 2.0 — along with a new phone, the HP Palm Pre 2 smartphone. The HP Palm Pre 2 is powered by 1 GHz processor, 16 GB of storage, 3.1 inch HVGA multitouch display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and...
Cons: Easy to call / text / email quickly with Just Type, Superb at multi-tasking support and visualization, Fantastic Facebook app, Poor camera / camera options, Occasional stability issues, Limited app support
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.
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
Excerpt: The recently announced and launched HP Palm Pre 2 is the first webOS smartphone from HP, after it acquired Palm earlier this year ; but it's also the first webOS 2.0 .

Excerpt: The Palm Pre 2 sees another outing for the well-received WebOS. Will this device help gain the OS some traction so that it can compete with the likes of Android and iPhone? Find out in our full review.
Summary: Closed it resembles a polished pebble, while when opened it loses none of its good looks. The novel user interface will take a bit of getting used to, but once you have it makes for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A bit of care is required when using the slightly cramped QWERTY keyboard.
Pros: An innovative UI, speedy processor, pinpoint accurate A-GPS and both an excellently responsive touch-screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Cons: The lack of apps including some core omissions (no native Twitter client) may deter some from swapping their Android and iPhone devices.
