The Palm Pre 2 is a touchscreen slider smartphone manufactured by HP and geared for  Verizon Wireless’s CDMA & UMTS networks networks. It hosts the same basic shape, not to mention the same 3.1” multi-touch display and sliding QWERTY keyboard. However, the camera has been upgraded from 3MP to 5MP, the onboard storage has gone from 8GB to 16GB, and the webOS platform has been upgraded to offer better multi-tasking and improved overall performance. One notable change is the addition of an included mobile hotspot app for turning the Palm Pre 2 into a mobile Wi-Fi router capable of offering Internet access to up to five devices. Other features are inherited from its predecessor, including support for Microsoft Exchange server, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and compatibility with the HP Touchstone Charging Dock.
