In addition to launching the Touchpad, HP also unveiled an all new Pre, the Pre3 to be exact.  It’s form factor is virtually identical, at least at a glance, to the previous Pres, but it’s what doesn’t meet the eye that has changed.

Under the hood is a 1.4Ghz Qualcomm MSM 8×55 CPU, WiFi a/b/g/n connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a-GPS, EVDO-A support and a 1230 mAh battery.  The display has been beefed up to 3.6-inches with a 800×480 resolution and so has the camera, which is now 5 meagpixels with an LED flash.  And of course its stuffed with Touchstone tech, which can not only charge the device “wirelessly”, but can share info by physically tapping it together with another Touchstone device, such as the Touchpad.

You’ll get to choose from an 8GB and 16GB version when it arrives this summer.  Sorry, no price or carrier mentioned.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
