Rogers Wireless to Offer HSPA-Enabled Palm Pre 211:28 am on October 29, 2010 | Category: Cell Phones, Mobile Devices, PDAs
Canadian mobile phone giant, Rogers Wireless, is planning to introduce a new and improved version of the Palm Pre smartphone capable of running on its HSPA mobile broadband network.
Until now, the original Palm Pre has been available in Canada through Bell Mobility, operating on that carrierâ€™s EV-DO Rev A network. The â€˜Pre 2,â€™ however, will feature faster â€˜3G+â€™ data speeds.
Other improvements include a faster (1-GHz) processor and webOS 2.0 operating system. The Pre 2â€™s other features, including a 480×320 display and 16GB of built-in memory, are essentially the same as those of the Bell device.
Rogers Wireless will launch the Pre 2 on November 9, at a cost of $100 on a three-year contract, according to the Canadian tech blog, Mobile Syrup.
