HP Palm Pre Hitting Stores On July 8th
If you are a fanatic of HP’s Palm Pre lineup, you’ll be excited to hear that July 8 will be the day it ships, at least in the U.K. The smartphone can be pre-ordered already and will arrive as a SIM-free, unlocked price of 349 pounds, or about $600 USD.
The Pre 3 runs WebOS 2.2 and rocks alright specifications, nothing as flashy as the new HTC phones, but what can you expect from HP in the mobile department. The phone comes as a quad band unit and weighs 156 grams.
The 3.58″ TFT capacitive touch display rocks a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and offers a landscape slide-out QWERTY keyboard with an accelerometer for UI auto-rotate. With 16GB of storage and 512MB of memory, this 3G phone is also 802.11 b/g/n WiFi capable.
For those looking to take decent photos while out on the town, the Pre 3 has a rear 5MP camera and runs on a 1.4GHz Scorpion processor. With a Qualcomm MSM8655 chipset, it is powered by Adreno 205 graphics.
One of the coolest features of this phone, besides the Assisted GPS is its active noise cancellation with integrated mic, digital compass, and its support of MP3 and MP4 files.
