HP Pre 3 Coming This Summer

At yesterday’s “Think Beyond” event, HP released what everyone has been expecting – the successor to the Palm Pre 2 called the HP Pre 3. The Pre 3 is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor and runs webOS 2.2.┬áThe Pre 3 will complement the tiny HP Veer as the high end phone in HP’s webOS device lineup.

Hardware specifications aside, the best feature of the Pre 3 is the tight integration with the TouchPad. The TouchPad can accept calls made to your Pre 3. However the best feature is Touch-to-Share – basically you just touch the Pre 3 to the TouchPad to share information – like URL, documents – between the two devices.

The Pre 3 certainly looks very impressive and presents a third choice for consumers other than iPhone and Android. However, the only let down so far has been the release data – this device will be available in the summer – an the fact that HP has not announced the price yet.

Specifications:

– webOS 2.2

– 1.4 GHz Snapdragon Processor

– 3.6-inch 800 x 480 display

– 5 MP camera capable of recording 720p HD video

– Front facing camera

– Internal storage of 8 GB or 16 GB

– 1230 mAh battery

– Touch-to-share
