We'll be honest, before getting hands on with the Pre 3 we had played with the HP TouchPad. As a result webOS felt small here, but it's certainly no less powerful. The cards interface looks terrific on a tablet and, while you need to be smarter with how you use it on a phone, it's certainly intuitive and easy to get a handle on.
HP Synergy enables you to sign into your various accounts such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft Exchange and all your data will automatically be synchronised.
There's also full support for HTML 5 and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta. All webOS devices also include the rather cool 'Just type' feature – simply start typing on the screen and the phone will offer you numerous things you can do with that input, such as a Google search or Facebook post. There's also true multitasking and full office document support.
The HP Palm Pre has a UK release date of Summer 2011.
