HP unwraps Palm Pre 2

New WebOS, 1GHz CPU, not much else

Intelligent flash storage arrays

HP has formally taken the wraps off WebOS 2.0 - due to ship in the Palm Pre 2 at the end of this week.

Unsurprisngly, perhaps, the smartphone will debut in France on the SFR network - from which details leaked a week or so back. HP promised a North American release "in the coming months", but there was no word of releases elsewhere.

Stack related running apps

The Pre 2 looks like its predecessors - despite claims that it has a sleeker design, it has the same dimensions as the Pre Plus - but incorporates a faster, 1GHz CPU. Its other specs are less cutting edge: it has a 3.1in, 320 x 480 touchscreen, GPS, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 5Mp camera with flash.

The handset contains 16GB of Flash storage.

WebOS 2.0 brings an unfinished version of Adobe Flash 10.1 to the handset, plus the ability to highlight favourite contacts, perform Skype calls (network permitting) and link to Bluetooth keyboards.

Becomes a clock when docked

Highlight WebOS 2.0 features include Stacks - groups of open apps that are related are fanned to make flipping between them more easy - and Exhibition, a scheme for running apps specifically when the handset is docked, allowing it to appear as a photo frame, clock or calendar, for example.
