    It's a placeholder phone surely? Designed to keep hardcore users on board and maintain their tiny market-share. I would guess that it's real important is to keep developers on-line until they get a decent new design to market.

    Here is a quick Photoshop layering of each label using the images provided by alan7467...I made sure all proportion constraints were in place, and confirmed by checking the Palm logo text size on top of each other before moving the red(old label) to fit the cut out holes of the new label. Red is old label, Black underneath is new label. Extremely close in size, and remember that the middle section length really has nothing to do with phone size, since most of that extra middle top section will be used to pull out the battery.

    Woah nice work there, so it looks like it will be the same form factor, id lov it to be all matte finish and with a better spring system for the slider.
    Of course with the better proc. more storage and better camera

    I sighed when I woke up to this, I thought the keyboarded device would be the flaship phone, but I guess focus is on the all touchscreen phone.

    Faster processor, 32MB of storage, WebOS 2.0, a little bit biigger screen and maybe front facing camera is all I need. On Sprint of course.

    I will need a LOT MORE than 32mb....

    I don't know if this matters, but the test report says the device was tested in mid-August...

    Is that important? D:

    I'm with you on that, matte finish just like the the back with tough durable plastic, and not just a better spring, but hopefully a more sure solid feeling slider. We'll just have to hope palm really improves on the design if they aren't making any drastic changes to it.

    I suggest you stop complaining about the cpu specs asap!

    Even your original Palm Pre will run as smooth as butter with webOS 2.0 gpu-accelerated graphics.

    The cpu then no longer has to calculate the graphics but can focus itself on speeding up the phone itself.

    There is definitely no need for more cpu power at the moment. You could have 5 GHz but it would just 'use' 1GHz at all. Would make no sense...


    Hold on your breath for webOS 2.0 on your current devices. THIS will be the most important thing relating to snappyness.


    What I would like to have from the P102 though, is better build quality and some more sensors.

    the evo ships with a crap battery to. i played with a few and that sucker drains way more than the pre. these companies should start shipping with higher capacity slim batteries.

    i just bought a 1400mAh for my pre and im happy. not sure if ill buy this new pre or not? i can already overclock to 1ghz.. we shall see what the design is like. if it comes next month i can use my upgrade for it.

    i also hope this will not be a 4g device, i have no desire to pay that "coolness" fee.

    surly they will give us a larger screen. most new phones have larger lcd's.

    agreed... but how do we know what carrier this will be on? im not switching to verizon just for this either.

    I just had an idea. Remember that the TUV certification was pulled. People are saying that the reason it was pulled was that the device was submitted for certification before Palm was purchased by HP and that HP is not releasing this phone. The certification was made public because that's the date on the submitted documentation for the certification to be made public. The phone model was P102.

    Now we have an FCC Palm approved phone with a model number P102. I believe the same thing is happening with this phone. The phone was submitted by Palm before it was purchased by HP. The documentation was to remain hidden until now. HP is not releasing this phone.

    There's a lot of information coming out of HP that's saying no new devices, phones and tablets, before 2011. Hey, the day of or the day before the FCC approval a HP VP said no new devices before 2011!!

    I say again - this is an approval for a phone PALM planed to release but HP vetoed it and the documentation was not pulled from the FCC.

    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    maybe hp should invest in mugen's 1400 mA batteries and install them in the pre 2 instead of the same 1150. More is always better when it comes to batteries.
    no matter how efficient the new cpu an webOS 2.0 are, all other top end devices have atleast 1400 mA batteries.

    I don't think this form factor will sell well...

    I remember when iPhone3GS was the best in class phone, and how fast it was compared to the Pre... Spotting the same proccessor!!!

    It's the combination of hardware plus software what matters, guys!!!

    1GHz + webOS 2.0 will fly.

    I'm sure it will not. People is buying slate form factors right now, and that's the reason of Mansion, that probably will become the flagship for the mainstream customers.

    That doesn't mean I won't be buying this phone, thought. It's the form factor that fit my needs
