Palm Pre 2

Announced back in October 2010, the Palm Pre 2 has finally made its way to a U.S. carrier. The WebOS smartphone is available now from Verizon Wireless for $149.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The Pre 2 has a very similar design to the Palm Pre Plus. The main difference is that the 3.1-inch HVGA display is flat instead of curved, and the soft-touch finish now extends to the outer edges.

The keyboard is also largely the same as the Pre Plus. The small buttons and cramped space take some getting used to, but it will definitely give people with larger thumbs pause. Needless to say, we're looking forward to the roomier keyboard on the HP Pre 3.
