Palm Pre 2 launch imminent, live pictures leak

Just yesterday we saw French carrier SFR inadvertently leak some details about the upcoming Palm Pre 2.

Not even a day has passed and now we have the first live hands-on pictures of the smartphone, courtesy of MobiFrance.

Along with the pictures came reconfirmation of the specs we heard about yesterday. As such, the Pre 2 will come with a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and will run WebOS 2.0.

Launch date? “Within days”. SFR will apparently be the exclusive carrier of the Pre 2 in France. The smartphone will be available online from SFR in a few days and then slowly become available in Espace SFR stores in early November.

As for the differences between this and its predecessor, as you can see from the pics, aesthetically they’re very similar indeed. The screen does appear to be less curved, as expected from yesterday’s leak. It’s the upgraded internals that count the most here, and especially the new OS version.

If the Palm Pre 2 will actually be available in a matter of days, that will be a nice surprise since this device’s existence was only confirmed yesterday.

    Looks very similar to the BlackBerry Torch….

    Looks as though they have finally got rid of that sharp edging around the keyboard. Just hope that the battery life is significantly better than the original Pre. Any news on this? As I really like Web OS.
