Voice Dial

All this and still no voice dial capability?! This is a basic capability that anyone would expect from a smart phone in this price range. In a state where hands free operation is required by law when driving it makes my phone a receive only tool when behind the wheel. pathetic.

New Rule

New Rule. If you have not own the phone or have spent one hour playing with the phone DO NOT
COMMENT. My Ex girlfriend has the Pre. I wish the keyboard was a side ways slider. I would take the Pre over the Blackberry 8530 that we use at my job.
that's because BBerry's are pretty much ONLY for business.

I HAVE played with a pre pretty extensively. The software is really nice, but it's got crappy hardware. From this refresh it looks like the hardware will still be an issue.

Is this a sick joke?

Really Palm? HP? Is this all you got? Basically rehash the original Pre with minimal changes... update the OS and call it a day?

In a world with iPhone 4's having retina displays, Droids and EVOs having 4.3 in screens. Phones with 4G. 8MP cameras and 720p video capture. People complaining about the Pre 1's cramped keyboard... This is a freaking JOKE... right?

RIP Palm. Even HP couldn't save you!
sigh..as much as im a fan of webOS...i would have to agree with this post...i felt the same way as i read this article... truly dissappointing...
i completely agree. when my upgrade was due in august, i seriously considered waiting it out to see what HP/Palm would release...glad i didn't hold my breath.

Why not Sprint?

This phone should've been released a year ago. I have absolutely no idea why what appears to be fairly modest upgrades took two full years.

What's most puzzling is why not Sprint? If I want to develop for anything resembling new Pre hardware I need to switch to Verizon? And as old as the Pre is, the Sprint Pre is even older.
Palm Pre on Sprint did not sell very well and you can blame it on the great job Sprint marketing team does. VZW marketing > Sprint marketing team. Since VZW advertise the crap out of the phones they really want to sell, then can put up some good num...

It will support Verizon's mobile hotspot feature, allowing up to five other devices to tether via Wi-Fi.

does it have a cost?
Yes, it will most likely be similar to the Droid offerings:

$20 for 2gb of data

My take is that this is just going to be their low tier phone, wait until CES in January that's when they're coming with something big. This is just to show off their WebOS 2.0 which is looking very nice. I'm personally waiting for January to see what's next. 😉

Bye HPalm. Better off some other company buy you again so they can release better phones.
So, I'v noticed you bash on Blackberry, and now Palm. What do you have?
I gotta agree with you there... Reading the specs on the phone is just kinda sad. Im sure the phone will be fine, but why buy this when you can get a more powerful phone for the same price. Hell, by the description it doesn't really change much from t...
Agreed. I am unimpressed by this announcement. Its practically the same as the original Pre aside from higher res screen and camera and a bit faster processor. I was excited when the first Pre came out and when I got it a week after it came out. This ...

Important questions

1. How is the GPS? Has it been fixed since the original Pre? Or is it still flaky? Is there Google Maps and Navigation for the Pre?

2. When will it be available?

3. What would be a contract and non-contract pricing?
I wish they would of changed the slide out keyboard by 90 degrees and made the screen 3.5 inch instead of the same size.

Sigh, though glad the OS is updated but still not going to get another one.
4. Also, I would assume that this time around the mobile hotspot feature will be a paid thing, much like the Droids. However, would a Palm Pre or Pixi owner who has it for free be grandfathered in with an upgrade?
