It was just yesterday that the new HP Pre 3 was announced, and now we have a pre-sale for the Pre 2, courtesy of Verizon Wireless.

It's a big enough day for Verizon as it is with the whole iPhone 4 launch today. But this shouldn't slow things down over there too much. However, could we be seeing the HP Pre 3 (as well as the HP Veer and TouchPad) headed to Verizon too?

Anyway, the webOS 2.0-based Pre 2 sports a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, 16GB of flash memory, a 1GHz processor and a 3G mobile hotspot included that supports up to five connected devices.

Interested buyers can pick one up for $99.99 with a two-year service agreement. It is expected to start shipping on February 17. For a closer look, take a look at the promo video below:
