As the carrier announced earlier this week, Hewlett-Packard’s last Palm-branded smartphone is now available for sale from Verizon Wireless. The phone features the latest version of HP’s webOS operating system alongside a 3.1-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a portrait-sliding QWERTY keypad. It is available for $149.99 with a two-year service contract in stores and online, though customers might want to wait for more news on the devices announced at HP’s recent “Think Beyond” event. To reiterate our position on the phone one final time, wait for the Pre 3. The Pre 2 is what the original Palm Pre should have been. The Pre 3, on the other hand, is what a webOS smartphone from HP should be.
