Following on from the official announcement and unveiling of the HP / Palm Pre 2 handset, we now have one of the first reviews for you to read, of webOS 2.0, the brand new operating system which will be running on the device.
That review comes to you courtesy of Engadget, who have given webOS 2.0 a glowing report. This may surprise one or two of you, but they have actually said that webOS is ‘probably neck and neck with iOS 4’, in terms of polishness and ease of use.
They have also stated that the OS from a general point of view is ‘incredibly fast’, adding that the performance of webOS 2.0 when switching between apps is very impressive.
The only big disadvantage they mention is that the Palm Pre hardware itself is not up to scratch, as they say its a shame that webOS 2.0 doesn’t have any high-level hardware to make use of.
Read the full review over at Engadget and let us know your thoughts on it. Are you considering buying a Palm Pre 2?
