Pre 2 demo shows focus on speed, quality enhanced

HP has confirmed that its HP Palm Pre 2 will be sold directly through HP SIM-unlocked. Also confirmed is that the device will include premium Gorilla Glass in a sign that HP has worked hard to ensure that Pre 2 build quality is improved over the original Pre. HP Palm Senior Product Manager Tim Pettitt (video below) demos the new device and explains that the development focus in the new webOS 2 has been on optimizing speed and multi-tasking performance.

Owners of the original Pre are also expected be able to download the revised OS on the official release of the device. Other hardware highlights of the device are the inclusion of a high-quality 5-megapixel camera with better depth of field, and coupled with an LED flash and a doubling of processor speed to 1GHz.

The HP Palm Pre 2 will launch in France first, with North America to follow soon after. At this stage the sole US carrier retailing the device in stores will be Verizon. [via webOSroundup]

    best mobile OS

    WebOS is awesome. It's so much more enjoyable to use than iOS. Now we just need HP to come out with the killer phone hardware.
