Palm Pre 2 Review

  • Summary: If you're in love with the webOS platform and can't wait until this summer for the Palm Pre 3, or your older device has suffered an unfortunate accident, then the Palm Pre 2 is fairly attractive at the low $50 price point. It's small, light, and does a great job of keeping you on track by seamlessly organizing all of your information in the background. It doesn't have the gee-whiz factor of the latest and greatest devices, but it's a solid, usable smartphone.
  • Pros: Simple, understated design, Easy to use webOS, Good battery life, Good camera
  • Cons: Small keyboard makes accurate text-entry tricky, Adobe Flash support is hit or miss, Fewer third-party apps than competitors

Verizon Pre 2 Review

3 March 2011
  • 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

Palm Pre 2 Review

22 December 2010
  • 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
