Palm Pre 2: 1GHz processor at last

by Volker Weber


HP is fixing the performance bottleneck:

1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, Same design as the current Pre series, but with a "flatter screen" (we’re supposing glass) and "more refined design."

That's inline with my expectations. It's becoming less round and more edgy. And it will be running at 1GHz, which makes all the difference. The new system software will also run on existing devices. Nobody mentions a release date, but I am confident to speculate "well before Xmas". Everything else would not make sense.

And if WebOS 2.0 will no longer drain the battery so fast and the pricing stays in the same band I wish it will be a big success!

But it was possible and easy to overclock the Pre anyway. Up to 800 MHz was no problem and without heating problems. Even 1000 MHz was available and I could test it. But 800 MHz is sufficient for me and fast enough for the software. The battery died not faster, but this is always the weak point of the device. But luckily there is the "touch stone". ;)

I wonder what this one will be able to overclock to?

Craig Boudreaux, 2010-10-12

yes overclocking was possible on the old palm pre and pre plus. But even if you overclocked the device to 800 oder 1Ghz you thought sometimes, that overclocking only happens in your mind and not on the device.

But I'm looking forward to a fast WebOS device, not so slow like the palm pre. But maybe it wasn't the device, maybe it was the operating system itself?

Stimmt. :-) Deshalb steht's im Preview drunter für Copy&Paste.
