Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

HP’s long-awaited reboot of the webOS based smartphone platform will touch down on July 8th with the launch of the HP Pre3.

That’s according to Play.com, who have launched a pre-order page for the handset that you can visit by clicking here.

Setting you back £349.99, it’s a fair sight cheaper than similarly spec’ed Android and iOS handsets. Using the webOS 2.2 operating system, the Pre3 has a 1.4GHz processor and 512MB RAM. 8GB and 16GB variants are available (though Play currently only have the 16GB model up for grabs) with a slide out QWERTY keyboard sitting underneath a 3.6 inch 800 x 480 touchscreen. A 5MP camera also sits on the back.
