Palm Pre 2's predecessor, the Palm Pre, is not quite a success. Good thing is Palm Pre 2 is different. Why? Because According to SFR, this phone can compete with iPhone and Android. Let's see if it really does reach the standard.

French phone carrier SFR brought new surperises yesterday. Palm Pre 2 had been lurking in the Internet with rumored specifications and images. SFR referred actually to these rumors as “flatter” and “more refined” than the original.

Palm Pre 2 is a follow up to last year’s Palm Pre who happens to be a flop. The Pre 2 carries a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. Boosting over the  600 MHz processor and 256 MB of RAM of its predecessor. Plus, more competitive to the iPhone market and the Droid 2. Palm Pre 2 will carry WebOS 2.0.

That’s what we know about the specs. Also, SFR says that Pre 2 will push notifications on Facebook such as wall posts and social media updates.

Looks like Palm has both the guts and power now.
