Palm Pre 2 Unveiled
HP Tuesday unveiled the new Palm Pre 2, and along with it the 2.0 version of its webOS operating system, both of which are the first of their kind introduced since HP purchased Palm this year.
The Pre 2 will arrive in the U.S. "in the coming months," and will be exclusive to Verizon Wireless at launch. The original Pre was a Sprint exclusive at its 2009 launch, but spread to other carriers soon after.
The new webOS offers multitasking, a "Just Type" system that allows users to start an email or message without opening an app as well as synergy with other HP products.
