Today HP announced the new Pre 2 smartphone, which runs webOS 2.0 and will be available from Verizon Wireless "soon." The Pre 2 borrows its design heavily from its predecessor, the Palm Pre. It retains the vertical slider form factor with touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard. The display measures 3.1 inches and has 360 x 480 pixels. Other hardware features include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; GPS; Bluetooth 2.1+EDR with A2DP; a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and video capture; an accelerometer for gaming; and 16GB of on board storage. It will support Verizon's mobile hotspot feature, allowing up to five other devices to tether via Wi-Fi. The webOS 2.0 software has been heavily updated. It now includes support for Adobe Flash Player Mobile 10.1, Bluetooth keyboards, HTML5 within the browser, Skype Mobile, and VPN access for business users. WebOS 2.0 refreshes the way stacks work, which can now be clustered into groups to reduce home screen clutter. Palm has renamed the Universal Search feature to Just Type, and it will support actions such as initiating emails, messages. Another new feature called Exhibition work with the Touchstone charger, and will display the user's daily agenda while the device charges. Neither HP nor Verizon Wireless said when the device will be available, nor what it will cost.
