The HP Pre 3 has now hit UK mobile shop Carphone Warehouse on the Vodafone network, packing the now retired WebOS software.
Boasting the new operating system which was “built from the ground up to do more, faster” and just as fast pulled from existence, running on a “best in class” 1.4GHz Snapdragon CPU, the HP Pre 3 carries the App Catalog for sharing and organising the thousands for free applications easily on the 3.6” WVGA touchscreen.
There’s also a business-savvy slide-out backlit keyboard, but the handset has quick and easy access to social connections with Facebook through HP Synergy close at hand. Touchstone tech delivers a ‘Touch 2 Share’ feature which allows owners to pick up a call on their TouchPad, or transfer data between WebOS gadgets.
CPW is currently listing the Vodafone model HP Pre 3 for free on contracts beginning at £10.50 per month. No word yet on a PAYG version but sources estimate at around £250. We’ll keep you updated.
