The HP Pre 3 is the best (and perhaps last) webOS smartphone to ever go on sale. It has a fast 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm CPU with 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, a 1230mAh battery, plus a 5MP camera on back with LED flash.
Overall the design of the Pre 3 seems dated, and the specs certainly are not up to par with what can be find in high end Android hardware. It’s a shame that over six months have passed between the announcement and the release of the Pre 3; had that window have been smaller, the Pre 3 would be met with warmer reception.
The smartphone is taller than the Pre 2 in order to accommodate the larger 3.6″ WVGA 800×480 display. This extra space also provides a larger keyboard, granting a nice typing experience (webOS still has no on-screen keyboard).
Again this is the UK version of the Pre 3, though it will work on AT&T 3G in the US in most places should you decide to import it.
