If you would like to see the official spec breakdown check out the official Palm Pre 2 web page (below), I can’t help but think that the specs are a little disappointing, do you agree?

    When reading your specs, I had to scroll back up to the top of the post to verify the date. It sounded like you were describing the original Palm Pre.

    “do you agree?”

    Not everyone wants a giant slab of a phone. I have the original Pre and one of the things I love about it is it’s size. It fits comfortably in my hand as well as in my pocket when not in use. If that means I have to have a slightly smaller screen, then so be it. A lot of manufacturers have forgotton that form should be considered as well as function.

    And WebOS is, hands down, the best mobile OS out there.

    I was hoping for a bigger screen. It would also be nice if they chose a different plastic for the housing. I have had the Pre since day one and I like the OS but when you look at the HTC products you cant help but feel inadequate with the Pre. Long live the Palm WebOS but lets get a fresh device!!!
