Palm Pre 2 WebOS 2.0 smartphone
Refined rather than revamped
Tweaks here, tweaks there
Palm has done a bit of work on its email functionality too. You can now view all of your accounts together or separately, and if you have a lot of messages you can also search through them by tapping in a few letters on the keyboard. There’s push email with support for Microsoft Exchange but you still can’t view threaded messages.
Plenty more apps in the store
The camera has been beefed up to 5Mp and now has a flash as well as an extended depth of field and geotagging. That’s about it, however, with no controls besides turning the flash on and off. Picture quality’s not bad, though it deteriorates quickly in lowish light and the position of the lens, effectively in the middle of the phone if you have it open, seems to be just right for covering with your finger.
Palm’s App Catalog is building up nicely with more than 4500 programs on offer, according to Palm, and it's now easily browsable by category. Quickoffice is pre-loaded so you can read, but not create, Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Same goes for the PDF viewer.
