HP at an event yesterday unveiled new offerings powered by webOS. The two smartphones that made its way out are Pre3 and Veer. The HP Pre3 is similar in design like its predecessor but ups the ante with a 3.58-inch WVGA touchscreen display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon (MSM8x55) 1.4GHz processor.
Pre3’s feature set includes 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 8 or 16GB internal memory, vertical sliding QWERTY keyboard, Gesture Area, A-GPS, 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording support, front-facing camera, Adobe Flash 10.1 support, mobile hotspot support, 1230mAh battery and unique Touch-to-Share function that allows to share web addresses between your Pre3 and HP’s TouchPad tablet.
No details on exact pricing or availability but Pre3 will arrive in summer.
While most smartphones today are going bigger in size, HP has created Veer, touted as the smallest webOS smartphone. Veer is the size of a credit card and thick as a deck of card but packs in full smartphone functionality as well as a physical QWERTY keyboard.
Veer has a 800MHz CPU and features a 2.57-inch (320×400) display, 3G, Gesture Area, 8GB internal memory, Adobe Flash 10.1 support, 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and more.
Veer will be available in early spring at an undisclosed price.
