1.2GHz dual-core action for Pre 3?

1.2GHz dual-core action for Pre 3?You might remember a few weeks ago there was some confusion about the processor in the HP Pre 3. The official Pre 3 website briefly suggested 1.2GHz dual-core, but quickly changed it back to 1.4GHz single-core as originally announced.

Now Orange has muddied the proverbial waters with a spanking new support page for the HP Pre 3. Under the specs section it states that the Pre 3 will have – you guessed it – a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. What the…?

It’s not clear if the processor will indeed be 1.2GHz dual-core after all, or if Orange is working from slightly-out-of-date info. Probably the latter.

What we do know for sure is that the HP Pre 3 will have a 3.58in display, 5MP camera, 512MB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Oh, and a sliding portrait QWERTY, of course.

It’s been a long wait for the Pre 3. It was originally announced at a high profile event back in February. Orange doesn’t provide an ETA on its support pages, but Expansys reckons stock is “expected in 7 days”. Yowser.

Incidentally, Expansys is going with 1.4GHz single-core too. That’s what our money’s on.

HP are weird. Why not come out and say, this is how it is?

Incidentally, I tried to find out if, the Kindle app aside, there is an eReader app available for HP's Touchpad. Even tweeted the Q repeatedly...Seems no one knows. Nor did @hp find my Q worthy of a reply. It's very odd behaviour in this competitive market.

Clove say they will be shipping the Pre 3 from tomorrow and they are listing it as a 1.4Ghz single core processor like the official HP spec.

So we should know for sure what's in them when they start tipping up on people's doorsteps at the end of the week.

That IS cheap...

Wonder what it says about HP's confidence in the product though :(

Might be to compensate for some serious gaps in the apps department ;)
HP are aware of the fact that they have a real problem in the Appstore. I'm not talking games or the 200th twitterclient - no doc editing, etc etc

Still, might give it a try...hmm
