Palm webOS 2.0 and Pre 2 Officially Announced

HP has finally unveiled the Palm Pre 2 as well as WebOS 2.0 today.

The Palm Pre 2 is the first device that will be shipped with WebOS 2.0. The new version of webOS 2.0 includes multitasking, stacks, HP Synergy as well as a number of other new features to make devices that run it, easier to use.

As for the Palm Pre 2 hardware its self, we see it has a 3.1 inch HVGA screen with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. The screen is multitouch. The device has support for Microsoft Exchange. It has GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi (b/g) and 16GB of storage inside. An accelerometer is also included with the usual array of sensors which includes a proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.

The CPU inside runs at 1GHz. It has a five megapixel camera and also has a slide out QWERTY keyboard like the previous version.

Overall it looks like a similar design with a few changes along with a few enhancements inside. The main thing here looks to be the webOS 2.0 software.

The first carrier to get the Palm Pre 2 is SFR in France. This will be followed by Verizon and a carrier in Canada over the coming months.
