HP announced version 2.2 of the webOS platform as well as version 3.0 which will power the TouchPad tablet and hopefully make it to webOS powered smartphones in the near future. But even with all this news, the second generation Pre is set for release on the UK’s three biggest networks.

The second generation device will feature version 2.0 of the webOS platform and not version 2.2 which will be powering the three new devices due out this summer. The Palm Pre 2 sports a 3.2 inch touchscreen display with multitouch support and a slide out QWERTY keyboard just like the first generation Pre’s. There is integration for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and many other social networking websites and as usual you have access to the best multitasking platform on the market.

Rounding out the features are a built-in media player, 5 megapixel camera on the back (unfortunately no front facing cameras), HSDPA, WiFi 802.11b/g/n and Adobe Flash 10.1 with 16GB of internal storage. Sadly, for the second time, the SD card slot has been ditched in favor of design.

Look for the Pre 2 to be available on plans of £18.19/month or £22.98/month on a two-year contract with 300 included minutes, unlimited messaging and 500MB of data.

As for our thoughts, if you’re hell bent on getting a webOS device (and why not?) we’d hold our hard earned cash until we get some dates from HP on the Veer and Pre 3 which are expected to launch in the not so distant future and if rumors are correct, should be making a landing on our UK shores before the end of the year. Not only will the specs be bumped up to that of the current market offering, but it should feature webOS 2.2 as well.
