For the latest news on the HP Pre 3 Price Drop
The Sim Free HP Palm Pre 3 brings together business and pleasure onto one phone. It has been developed for multi-taskers who want to get even more done at the office and home. The design of the phone has been slimmed from its predecessor and now puts more emphasize on the entertainment you can get through the WGVA widescreen display. The display screen is 3.8 inches with a pixel resolution of 400 by 800 pixels. The touchscreen has the ability to zoom in and out when viewing a web page through the Pre3’s browser.
Under the bonnet of the Pre 3 is a Qualcomm MSM 8x55 processor, running at a nifty 1.4GHz. HP has kept the card-based task launcher on its Pre 3 smartphone having previously been on its predecessor, the Pre 2. Just like before, you just tap on the task/app you want to call upon and then swipe it upwards off the screen to send away and close it down. Apps that are not being used will simply remain open but sit inactive. While apps that are active will only be the ones drawing power from the processor.
The Pre 3 keyboard has had a noticeable change in terms of design. It is still a slide-down keyboard that has elevated buttons but now with more space between each key. The keys have been made softer, making typing even more comfortable and faster.
In addition, the Palm Pre 3 now boasts a 5-megapixel rear camera and you can record and capture videos in 720p high definition. As far as connectivity features, it has Wi-Fi and 3G, Bluetooth and assisted GPS for location services. There is a proximity sensor, accelerometer, compass and it can used as a mobile hotspot supporting up to other five other devices.
