    Design elements are still there, but HP wants to diversify Palm.

    The developer Pre 2 is UTMS and will probably use AT&T's 3G service. So there you go.

    first Ive had the Evo the same time I had my pre, and my OC pre ran just as fast or faster then the EVO at times. To me I cant consider a speed test comparison on apps like facebook, unless its the same exact application on each device. Otherwise it would not be a fair comparison which is a no brainer. though opening up stock applications like sms, email, phone etc I had pretty much the same speeds when doing so on each device, so I don't see a issue with that. Though of course the card flash to me can be interperted as a bad thing, or long loading times, though as stated it is one perception. When benched tested on my end, the times were identical (with a OC 1ghz pre). Also remember we are only on 2.0 where as Google still had a yr head start, and better funding until up to this point. So to me I still want to give HP sometime to assist Palm in optimizing Webos, and I feel not only 2.0 will be a better build, but ones in the near future will be alot better as well now that Palm has the funding to.

    Here is his explanation:
    The Palm Pre 2 was suppose to be release in July as a refresh to the current models. It got pushed way back due to the merger. HP decided that they still wanted to release the device as a refresh similar to Motorola and the Droid 2. This is why Sprint will not be carrying it until 2011. Sprint wants a 4G Smartphone device from HP, and the Pre 2 would not be able to support that with the current refreshed model. The devices Roadrunner and Roadrunner HD are NOT part of the current Pre refresh. Roadrunner is not the Pre 2. He did not find the codename for it, but it could be Mansion. WebOS 2.0 is scheduled to be release in November, and I still think the new device will be released in early/mid November.

    HP once again pushed back the release date for the device I has specified in the earlier C40 thread. The lack of screens manufactured, time in which HP was able to sink money into Palm for screen orders and TI is behind in chip production of the OMAP4430.

    So the quick info is. Refresh Now, January you get 3 devices (PalmPad, and 2 new phones).
    several folks in this thread pointed out that the pre 2 was the p102/roadrunner. according to tweet from internals and an updated webos roundup site, the pre 2 is NOT a p102, but a p103 (so... not the roadrunner).

    kudos to your source.

    Huh? According to Rod, it identifies as Nova-WR-Roadrunner which seems to, as always, directly contradict Nitoxys' "source."

    Kinda makes sense, but everyone should take this with a grain of salt.

    we should still consider the possibility of the existence of the Roadrunner "HD" counterpart, 3.5"+ slab form factor maybe?
