MWC 2011: HP Pre3 review - first look video

We get some hands-on time with the webOS-based Pre3.

HP might have beaten the Mobile World Congress rush to launch its new smartphones and tablet but it took full advantage of the gathered masses to show off the devices this week.

The Pre3 is the company's first smartphone launch since the Pre 2 late last year.

The device runs the major asset to come with the deal, webOS, and has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for easier typing of documents and emails.

The screen comes in at 3.6in, with a 480 x 800 resolution, and inside it runs a powerful 1.4GHz processor.
