MWC 2011: HP Pre 3 is a Glossy 1.4GHz Smartphone, Taken for Hands on Ride Here (Video)

Don’t think we forgot HP at MWC! We were also present at their booth, ready to test the HP Pre 3 and Veer models. The first comes with an incredible 1.4GHz CPU (Scorpion) that should make running webOS 2.2 a breeze, as shown in the hands on video below. According to the man at the HP booth, this is the webOS device with the widest keyboard ever.

We also have to mention that there’s a 5MP camera at the back of this device and a sliding QWERTY keyboard, that reveals a mirror surface, making the photographing experience more intuitive. The display on the HP Pre 3 is a 3.5 inch one, with 480 x 800 pixel resolution. As mentioned in the hands on clip, dual microphones will handle voice cancellation and as far as the apps are concerned, the same ones can run on the Pre 3, Veer and TouchPad with no problems.

This HP smartphone will hit the market in Q2 and it’ll also bring WiFi 802.11 b/g/n support, HSDPA and 720p video capture.
