HP Veer & HP Pre 3 Announced By Palm
 
 

HP / Palm announced the next wave of webOS smartphones today, alongside their new TouchPad tablet. The Pre 3 is the flagship phone, optimized for productivity and multitasking. It has a 3.58" touchscreen and a 1.4 GHz processor. There's the traditional sliding keyboard and the latest version of webOS.

The Pre 3 offers enterprise email support, HP Synergy for easy logins to your social networks, and Flash 10.1 beta compatibility. There is a front-facing camera for video calling, along with a speaker and noise cancellation. HP has included suport for Quickoffice to allow viewing of Microsoft Word and Excel documents. There will also be Google Docs and box.net integration.

This new Pre's coolest feature is touch-to-share, which lets you tap your phone to the HP TouchPad to share web addresses between gadgets. That's the kind of feature we could really stand to see everywhere.

The HP Veer is a tiny, minimalist alternative to the Pre 3. It is the size of a credit card and the thickness of a deck of cards, with a sliding keyboard and a 2.57" touchscreen. It weighs 103 grams and packs an 800 MHz processor. The Veer has 8 GB of storage, a 5 MP camera, GPS, and most of the same non-business features as the Pre 3.

Both devices support the TouchStone dock. The Veer will launch in "early Spring" while the Pre 3 is set to hit in summer. No price or availability information exists at this time. You can visit the new webOS phones online here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
