Without certain specs that have become the norm (dual cameras, playback format capability, screen sizes that will actually have developers excited once again about developing for Palm, no mention of 4G (or even LTE radios for that matter), etc) this phone seems to be a bone to those that are starving.
I'm assuming this is the phone that should have been released this past summer. This doesn't sound like a post-Palm/HP era phone design. This will no doubt again disappoint many (me included). I'm a Sprint user and if this is what I waited for (despite all the other hw spec'd phones available with their crappy Android OS) I'll have to rethink whether or not WebOS can hold me over AGAIN.
My fondest wish is that this is what I mentioned earlier, the phone that was supposed to be released this past summer and that the real phone has still not been leaked.
HP muscle or not, developers will not care whether or not who is pushing it. They'll only care if the device is worth their time. This already doesn't inspire confidence but hopefully this is just one of the several phones that HP will release.
Hopefully, the real spec sheet still has details that have not been revealed.
This minor spec bump is disappointing to me.
