HP Delivers webOS 2.1 To European Pre Plus Phones

Good news for those of you who live in Europe. webOS 2.1 is available for the German Palm Pre Plus. Updating is not your typical OTA variety, but requires you download the webOS 2.1 doctor from their site. Bad news for those of us stateside, as the doctor will not work with Pre Plus phones on US carriers. There is a movement in place that will allow you to modify the doctor for use on your phones, but appears to be in the alpha stages.

Still no word from Palm on their plan to “make things right“. One would assume webOS 2.1 runs perfectly fine on Pre Plus devices, given an official release in Europe. While we applaud the efforts of webOS Internals, there really needs to be an official release available from HP. For most, updates that require terminal entries is far from a realistic upgrade path.


Palm webOS 2.1 Getting Pushed Today?

According to a few reports, Palm has started to push webOS 2.1 to some devices. The update is far from being widespread, but it’s been seen on the Sprint Pre, a Palm Pre 2 and a Rogers Palm Pre 2. ┬áNo update here on an AT&T Palm Pre Plus, but that doesn’t leave us not hoping for some pre-event goodness.
