HP / Palm Pre 2 to Dump Sprint for Verizon

Rumors of a Palm Pre 2 have been doing the rounds for some time now, but since HP purchased Palm, the update has been up in the air. However, fresh rumors surfaced this week when details leaked on specs and photos of the next webOS handset.

Many questions were left unanswered, but one looks to have been answered for us now. The first Pre was originally launched on Sprint, now it looks as though they will be dumped in favor of Verizon — this does make sense if they wish the handset to stand out amongst the dozens of Android smartphones released each year. More details on this can be found on Engadget.

One question that that still remains is the whether the new handset will in fact carry Palm branding or move over to HP. Maybe it is time for change, and with HP being the largest PC vender in the US, this will certainly help carry some weight?

We cannot say for certain if Sprint has been dropped, but it has to be a huge kick in the teeth for the carrier who enjoyed the exclusivity when the first Palm Pre launched in June 2009? The other carrier that could also get the new version of the smartphone is AT&T. Which carrier do you think is best for the HP/Palm Pre 2?
