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.

The left side features a volume rocker, while the right spine has a Micro-USB port.

On top of the handset, you'll find a 3.5mm headphone jack, a power/lock button, and a silent ringer switch.

The Pre 2 features a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and video-recording capabilities.

Despite the lack of editing options, we were impressed with the picture quality. Photos came out sharp and with bright colors.
