HP Palm Pre 2 Be Resurrected as HP Android Bender?

Posted By on September 18, 2012

Rumors arrive as soon as I succumb to Apple iOS and the new iPhone 5. Hmm …

After HP ditched webOS, the Palm Pre and the HP TouchPad, it stopped producing smartphones at a great loss. Recent rumors suggest that HP will get back in the smartphone fold with an Android device. It has been reported that the “HP Bender” will feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a Qualcomm s4 dual-core processor, and 1366 x 720 p HD resolution. Many thought that HP would choose Windows Phone 8 over other OS to work with the Windows PCS and tablets. The Palm Pilot was in fact the first handheld computer. The Palm Treo was the first handheld computer and phone combo unit. The Palm Pre was the first smartphone with synergy to integrate feeds, contacts and many functions.

    I don’t think you will regret buying the iPhone, Mr. Corbett. I switched from using a Blackberry and don’t miss the thumb keyboard at all. Anxious to hear about it when you get it.

    • I’m actually looking forward to it as well. I still know that I’m going to miss the physical keyboard, but am learning to function with the iPad and have played with my wife’s Samsung Galaxy SII — not bad, especially with Swype … oh, that’s not on the iPhone? gulp! 😉
