HP unveiled the new and improved Palm Pre smartphone today at their WebOS event. The Pre 3 doesn’t look very different from its predecessor. It has the same upward-slider design as the Veer and older Palm Pre phones, though the keyboard is the largest QWERTY keyboard of any WebOS phone yet. The screen measures 3.6-inches and has a resolution of 480×800–double the resolution of the Palm Pre. In addition, it runs on a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, can shoot “HD video,” has a 5MP rear camera with autofocus/LED flash, and a front-facing camera as well. As far as storage, 8GB and 16GB models will be available, and the device will support HSPA+ 4G (AT&T, T-Mobile) as well as Wi-Fi connections. No LTE support was mentioned at this time. The device will be available this summer, but no pricing was announced.
