HP Pre 3 support page live on Orange website

Pre 2 follow-up landing imminently on Orange?

The grapevine had gone quiet on the progress of the HP Pre 3 (follow-up to the erstwhile Palm Pre 2), and for a while now we'd been fearing the worst. But several months after we first caught wind of the keyboard-happy smartphone, Orange have put up an official support page for the Pre 3 on their website, suggesting the Pre 3 lives on in more than just our hearts.

The last we'd heard about the Pre 3 was back in February, when we outed its specs and pegged its release date at sometime this summer. Sadly, we were a little over-optimistic with the specs: instead of a 1.4GHz single-core processor, the Pre 3 actually runs at 1.2GHz, and instead of a choice of 8GB or 16GB of storage, Orange is only listing the smaller 8GB option on the phones specs page. Boo.

Apart from this, the specs we got were bang on the money: a 3.6-inch screen with a resolution of 800x480 pixels, a 5MP camera and the famous slide-out keyboard are all present and correct, as is the webOS 2.2 operating system. It's no iPhone 5 (we hope), but as a mid-range smartphone it might tempt a few business-minded users away from BlackBerry.

Orange doesn't list a release date on the site, but with this page up it can't be far off. In the meantime, take a look at the HP Pre 3 courtesy of Orange below.
