Comments on: Palm Pre 2 Hardware Changes Demo'd

While the main attraction of the upcoming Pre 2 is undoubtably WebOS 2.0, there are a number of small but distinct hardware improvements made to the device. A nice hands-on YouTube demo video was recently posted by showing all of the Pre 2's new features courtesy of Tim Pettitt, product manager for HP/Palm.

First of all, the exterior has seen some minor revisions, including a slightly thinner, more chiseled design to replace the "river stone" aesthetic of the original Pre. Addressing the numerous build quality woes over the past 18 months, Palm has improved the overall build quality as well as the response of the slider. The device's QWERTY keyboard has been enhanced even more from the already-improved Pre Plus keyboard, offering a tactile "click" according to Mr. Pettitt. In addition, a new Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant flat screen adorns the front, replacing the previous curved plastic screen.

Error in report: LED flash

Please check your facts. The LED flash is not new to the Pre 2! All the PREs and PIXIs have an LED flash!

Good post otherwise.
