During HP’s event today, the company debuted not only the long-awaited TouchPad, but also two smartphones: the HP Pre 3 and HP Veer. The first Pre model without Palm branding is a webOS QWERTY slider with a 3.6 inch 800 x 480 pixel touch display.
There’s also a 5MP camera with autofocus and LED flash on board, plus support for 720p HD video and a front facing videocall camera. The OS of choice is webOS 2.2, while under the hood you’ll find a 1.4GHz CPU (Qualcomm MSM8x55). On the connectivity side, you get WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, HSPA+ and EVDO Rev A.
512MB DRAM complete the specs list and we must mention that this device supports an interesting feature, that allows the user to take the calls of the Pre 3 using the TouchPad tablet. Also, touching the two gadgets will enable URL sharing via a function called touch-to-share. You’ll be able to purchase the phone starting this summer, in 8 and 16GB versions.
