The rumored new Palm phone is here.

HP just announced a new Palm phone. The Palm Pre 2 with webOS 2.0 will already go on sale this Friday in France. Verizon Wireless will get the Palm Pre 2 in the coming month. The new Palm Pre 2 is the first Palm phone with a 1Ghz processor and features a 5-megapixel camera, a glass screen and a sleeker, streamlined design that still gives users the ideal combination of a vivid touchscreen and a slide-out keyboard.

Other features of the new Palm Pre 2 include 3.1-inch screen with 320x480px resolution, GPS, 16GB memory, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor.

Feature highlights of the new webOS 2.0 include true multi-tasking, HP synergy, Skype (on Verizon only), Exhibition mode (comes later), Favorites and lots of smaller improvements. See also the Palm site for all details about the new Palm Pre 2 phone.

The webOS 2.0 update will be delivered to existing Palm phone customers in the coming months, with exact timing to be announced at a later date.

The new Palm Pre 2 is pretty similar to the first Pre with slight design improvements. The new features in the webOS 2.0 sound nice, but if the new Palm Pre 2 will be able to steal away customers from Android, Apple or the new Windows Phone 7 devices is doubtful. It is strange that it takes still months until HP releases the webOS 2.0 update to existing Palm phone owners.

Verizon and AT&T Palm phones are all on sale for 1 Penny with new contract on Amazon.
