HP to launch Palm Pre 2 on Monday

The Palm Pre 2 will go on sale SIM-free and unlocked via Palm’s UK website for £399 and will feature an update of webOS 2.0

HP will launch the Palm Pre 2 on Monday (November 15) SIM free and unlocked in the UK via www.palm.com/uk for £399.

It’s the first phone to be released by the IT manufacturer since it announced the purchase of Palm for £788 million in April of this year, and features the new HP webOS 2.0. It’s also the first Palm phone with a gigahertz processor and comes with a five-megapixel camera and glass screen.

The HP webOS 2.0 enables a range of tasks to be completed. For example, users can pause a game, tap an email notification, check their calendar, read a restaurant review, send an email reply, then switch back to the game without closing anything.

‘Just Type’ enables users to start an email, create a message, update their status and search their favourite webistes before opening an application.

Users can also tag their favourite contacts so they appear as favourites in Phone and Contacts views so when searched by name, they appear at the top of the Contacts, Email, Messaging and Phone applications. Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite is a document viewer that offers support for Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
