  • 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.
  • 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

Palm Pre 2 in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
8 June 2011
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: 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...

  • Excerpt: It has been a while since we've been excited about anything related to Palm. The original Palm Pre and its WebOS mobile operating system showed early promise and seemed even more refined than Google's early Android 1.5 OS but just didn't gain enough steam to compete in the smartphone marketplace...

  • Summary: : Palm has done a good job with this smart-looking device, with plenty of features. It’s just a shame there are so few apps on offer.
  • Pros: : An unusual but enjoyable user interface, fast processor, responsive touch-screen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a really accurate A-GPS
  • Cons: Some major things missing (such as a native Twitter client) and a dearth of apps may deter iPhone or Android users from swapping their existing phones

  • Conclusion: Hats off to Palm for carving a place for itself in the crowded smart phone market, with its brace of handsets that manage to combine cute good looks with powerful smarts and a uniquely different OS.
  • Pros: Decent capacitive touch screen, webOS 2.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, Flash video support
  • Cons: Squishy keys, no memory expansion, camera could do with more features

  • Summary: It doesn't look much different to what's come before, so is the Pre 2 more than just Pre Plus Plus?
  • Pros: One of the best OS concepts around, Build quality, Generally quite snappy, Decent camera, Good keyboard
  • Cons: Feels like minor update, No improvement to screen, Some bugginess, Battery life, Not subsidised
