Palm Pre 2 Hitting Verizon Tomorrow

Just announced from the HP Palm Think Beyond webOS event is that the long speculated Palm Pre 2 is finally hitting Verizon tomorrow. The device is the first to sport the webOS 2.0, but sadly this release announcement comes just as they announce exciting news about the Palm Pre 3.

Palm Pre 2 from Verizon on February 17th?

Palm Pre 2 from Verizon on February 17th?

Looks like the Palm Pre 2 is going to be available in less than two weeks, if you believe an internal product page from a third party retailer. This would be great a couple months ago, but the first webOS 2 device seems a little late to the party.

Palm Pre 2 for Verizon Appears in Best Buy’s System, Still Not Available

Palm Pre 2 for Verizon Appears in Best Buy’s System, Still Not Available

It's been over two months since the Palm Pre 2 was announced, with the company saying that the Verizon version of the device would be released "in the coming months." The handset's available in Europe, and you can even buy yourself a GSM-based unlocked version of the second generation Pre, but there hasn't been any word on the handset landing on Verizon since its announcement. Of course, there's been rumors, but nothing official. And while seeing the Pre 2 appear in Best Buy's system is no indicator as to when, exactly, the handset will be showing up for sale, at least we know that the retailer is getting ready to sell it. And that's a pretty good step forward.

Palm Pre 2 for Verizon Shown Off in eBay Auction, Subsequently Pulled

While the Palm Pre 2 may be making the rounds over in some European countries right now, as well as in GSM form, and unlocked here in the States, there are several fans of the new device, and primarily webOS 2.0, that are (trying to) wait patiently for the device to land on Verizon. While the device has yet to receive an official release date, or even be shown off yet with Verizon branding, there's no doubt that there's at least a few devices running around on the Verizon network. And sure enough, someone with one of those devices put it up on eBay, where you could have been the lucky buyer. Until the auction got pulled.

Is webOS 2.0 Coming to Palm Devices in Q1 2011?

Is webOS 2.0 Coming to Palm Devices in Q1 2011?

Possibly. After having been promised HP webOS 2.0 by the end of 2010, Palm users are still having a little bit of a cry circle. If they'd like to have it, they certainly can, but going to the story to purchase a Palm Pre 2 wasn't exactly what most Palm users were looking for. That's bush league, man! According to Germany's O2 Twitter account, webOS 2.0 wont be loaded to Palm devices now until the first quarter of 2011. WHYYY? I WANT IT NOW!

HP’s webOS 2.0 On-Screen Keyboard Gets Shown Off in Video

HP’s webOS 2.0 On-Screen Keyboard Gets Shown Off in Video

When webOS launched, there was some grumbling that the device, when it came to the Palm Pre (and subsequently released, Palm Pre Plus), focused too much on the portrait-slider hardware keyboard. The absence of an official on-screen keyboard left some people wanting more. And while there were "options" available for those who wanted to travel down some particular roads, Palm seems to want to keep focusing on the hardware keyboards. That should surprise no one, considering Palm's device legacy. But, it looks like webOS 2.0, which launched with the release of the Palm Pre 2, features a software keyboard, even if it is far from perfect.

Palm Pre 2 lands in UK

Palm Pre 2 lands in UK

The Palm Pre was expected to do really well in the market and ultimately the phone failed. It sold better than some of the real epic failures like the Kin family from Microsoft, but Pre sales were nothing like what Palm and many people that waited for the phone expected. Palm was eventually gobbled up by HP and the first smartphone to trickle out from Palm since then is the Pre 2 and that device is available in the UK right now.
