You may have read our article yesterday where we revealed the HP Palm Pre 3‘s impressive technical specifications, in this article we spoke about how webOS and the 1.4GHz processor could make this smartphone great, now Engadget has had some hands-on time with this handset and early signs are good.
Sadly we cannot embed the hands-on video on this page, therefore head over to Engadget to watch it, the video is not very in-depth, however does give us a quick look at the Pre 3’s physical design and its super-speedy performance.
It is hard to ignore just how quick webOS performs, also Engadget claim that the Pre 3’s build quality feels good and the 3.6-inch display’s 480 x 800 resolution really shows off the impressive UI, also the QWERTY keyboard is said to be fantastic, however one slight concern is that there seems to be a little bit of give with the sliding mechanism.
You can see a ful gallery of Pre 3 photos here, you will notice that the Palm logo is long gone and now there is HP branding on the back, you can see some photos of the Touchstone 2 here, also you may want to check out IntoMobile’s review, they say that the Pre 3 is as impressive as webOS 2.1 and by the looks of things webOS 2.1 is the biggest rival to iOS.
Will you buy the Palm Pre 3 this summer?
