Apple’s iPhone pretty much has gotten all the attention in the world of smartphones. Even people who are not exactly convinced of the iPhone’s “greatness” as a mobile phone cannot deny the attention that it has received. Of course, every now and then, we hear of the new phone that can match – or outdo – the iPhone. And, yes, there are “better” phones out there – especially if you take into consideration that different people will always have different perspectives when it comes to technology.
So, anyhow, do you remember some time back when Palm announced the Palm Pre and touted it as the iPhone killer? While the Pre got a lot of attention prior to its release, it didn’t really take much away from the iPhone, did it? It’s not over yet, though. HP has bought Palm and they are launching the Palm Pre 2 very soon!
This new phone has a host of new features that are supposed to beat every other phone out there, but one of the main things that they are promoting is the fact that you can do virtually anything on the Pre 2 by typing. Doesn’t make sense? Read how to “rediscover amazing”:
Amazing is just typing to begin virtually any activity. Amazing is multitasking without having to learn new rules. Amazing is hauling in all the information you can handle, and managing it without breaking a sweat. Amazing is making the impossible seem effortless. With HP webOS 2.0, you’ll experience the next generation of amazing.
Pretty good copywriter they have, I have to say! 😉
Of course, I am sure you want the dish on the tech specs. Here’s a little teaser:
- Display: 3.1-inch multitouch screen with a vibrant 24-bit color, 320×480 resolution HVGA display
- 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, extended depth of field, geotagging, and video capture
- Wireless: Wi-Fi 802.11b/g with WPA, WPA2, WEP, 802.1X authentication; Bluetooth® wireless technology 2.1+ EDR with A2DP stereo Bluetooth support; Wi-Fi router functionality for up to five devices using Palm mobile hotspot.
- Weight: 145 grams (5.1 ounces)
So, is that enough to make you want the Pre 2 instead of the iPhone 4? Meh.
