HP Pre 3 coming to UK via Orange

Pre 3

A help page on the Orange website has revealed the HP Pre 3 is coming to the UK.

The page shows a number of the phone's specs, including its 5MP camera, HP webOS 2.2 and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.

The manufacturer has downgraded the Pre 3 processor, it appears. When HP showed off the phone at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, it was running a 1.4GHz processor.

The phone will also feature 512MB RAM and 8GB internal storage. The screen comes in at 3.6in, with a 480 x 800 resolution.

The business-orientated phone comes with both touchscreen capabilities and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Video calling and Exchange support also feature.

No official UK release date for the Pre 3 has been disclosed.

HP brought webOS back to life when it purchased Palm last year. The company released its TouchPad tablet last month, with IT Pro scoring the device four stars out of six.
