New webOS smartphones outed in leaked pics

07 April 2011 - 16:14:11

Images and information surrounding a few new smartphones based on the webOS platform have emerged, suggesting that HP is well on the way to re-launching this critically acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful operating system.

Owners of the Palm Pre or Pre 2 may well want to sell their old phones when they get a glimpse of what is in store, as images nabbed by PreCentral suggest that HP is working on a webOS smartphone which has no keypad whatsoever.

Until now all webOS devices, including the Palm Pixi and Pre ranges, have used portrait physical QWERTY keypads in conjunction with a touchscreen display. Now it seems likely that a new webOS device without a physical keypad of any kind is on the way.

The HP Pre 3, which was unearthed earlier in the year and will feature a decent 1.4GHz processor along with a larger 3.5 inch display, is still going to have its keypad intact. This suggests that HP is broadening the rear of its webOS range to appeal to people who want a sleeker, lighter touch-only mobile, which still has all the multitasking goodness of the platform upon which it is based.

The HP Veer was also shown in the pictures, essentially plugging a lower section of the market with its smaller form factor and Pre-esque keypad. Quite where the as yet unnamed touch-only webOS mobile will slot in remains to be seen.

It seems likely that HP will be debuting the new webOS devices in the US on the Verizon network before releasing them elsewhere, but expect to see UK networks offering their support in the coming months.

The only downside of picking a webOS device at the moment is, because of their relative obscurity, the resale value will not be maintained at a high level for as long as something like the popular iPhone 4.
