Pre Plus owners get webOS 2.1 on O2 Germany

webOS 2.1 arrives for Pre Plus on O2 Germany

The webOS 2.1 firmware for the Pre Plus handset has now been made available for download in Germany, despite HP saying earlier this month it won't upgrade older handsets to the firmware. This includes the Pre, Pre Plus, Pixi and Pixi Plus, and HP may still stand by its decision, as it's just carrier O2 that is upgrading the Pre Plus and no one else, at least thus far.

HP said it would not release the software because the older devices have slow processors and wouldn't be able to take full advantage of the full software, which brings more multitasking as well as extra features such as Just Type searching. The handsets named above sport 500MHz or 600MHz processors, while the Pre 2 has a 1GHz chip. The software brings beta Flash 10.1 support to the handsets as well. [via PreCentral forums]
