If you just can't think beyond
next week and need to get your new Pre
fix as soon as possible, HP's got you covered. As promised
by Jon Rubinstein yesterday, the Pre 2 (sans
the lovely Palm branding) is today available to pre-order at $100 on a two-year Verizon contract. Unsubsidized and contractually liberated pricing is $450. webOS 2.0, a "Vivid" touchscreen and, of course, that familiar portrait slider keyboard await those brave enough to own a HP smartphone.
