Is This the Palm Pre 2?
A follow-up to the Palm Pre smartphone has been expected for quite some time, and now images of just such a device have appeared.
Pictures purported to be of the next-generation Palm Pre showed up on MobiFrance, a technology publication. They show a smartphone with many similarities to the Palm Pre, but with distinct differences, too. The Palm logo is proudly displayed on the back.
One clue to the phone's authenticity is the operating system. The next version of the Palm Pre is said to run webOS 2.0 , and the images clearly show a different interface from webOS 1.0. MobiFrance says this phone has a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM inside.
The design is similar enough to the original Pre, however, that this could simply be an updated model instead of an entirely new phone. According to anonymous sources, though, this is the next big phone from Palm and will be launching soon.
