Rumors of a Palm Pre 2 were proved to be true last month, but two things were yet to be revealed, release date and if the new webOS 2.0 device will carry the name Palm or HP? We now have the answer to one of those questions, you can pre-order from Monday November 8, 2010.
OK, so we know that it is not a release date, but it is as good as. According to Dieter Bohn from Pre Central, the news was put up on HP’s Facebook page for students — so we know that this date is for real then?
Looking at that Facebook page we can see that there is also a Plus version; Bohn is not certain if this is a typo or if it relates to the Verizon version of the new handset? Then again, this could be the unlocked GSM model?
How do you think the Palm Pre 2 will perform in a market that is dominated by the iPhone and Android? Palm has already gone up against Apple and lost, and now that Android has become a much larger beast things do not look good — especially when you consider the specs in the Pre 2.
