HP’s unlocked, GSM Palm Pre 2 available in U.S.; $450 [Updated]

Early this morning, HP made the unlocked, unbranded, GSM, Palm Pre 2 available on its U.S. website. The webOS 2.0 device, which will retail for $449.99 contract-free, is listed as “in stock” and has a ship time of under 24-hours. Just a quick recap on the Pre 2: 1 GHz processor, 3.1-inch multi-touch display with 320 x 480 resolution, Wi-Fi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS, 16GB of on-board storage, and a 5 megapixel camera. Anyone plan on picking one up?

UPDATED: We pinged HP to see exactly which 3G bands the unlocked, GSM Pre 2 being sold in the company’s U.S. online store would support, and we’ve got our answer: “It supports 3G with 850MHz and 1900MHz.” More →

Croatian blog njuskalo.hr has an image of what appears to be the HTC Vision; possibly one of HTC’s first high-end, full-QWERTY Android offerings. Details on the device are unconfirmed and extremely scarce, however njuskalo.hr sources indicate that the device has a 3.7″ touch-screen, 1 GHz processor and Android 2.1. From the image we can see a full-QWERTY slide-out keyboard (reminiscent of the Touch Pro 2), optical trackpad, and the units apparent use of a SIM card. We certainly could use more high-quality, full-QWERTY, Android offerings…so we hope this one makes its way out of the lab and onto the production line.
