Palm Pre Plus gets webOS 2.1.0 update in Germany

Palm Pre Plus gets webOS 2.1.0 update in Germany

HP's suggestion that older webOS devices wouldn't be seeing 2.x updates seems to have been overly cautious: an upgrade to webOS 2.1.0 is now available for the Palm Pre Plus on O2 Germany. According to the support page, Pre Plus owners can punch their serial number into a webOS doctor to find out if they're eligible; unfortunately right now that means only O2 Germany handset owners get the update.

SG Comics Presents: Survivor Mobile OS

Mobile/tablet OS platforms are duking it out for survival as platform updates, new product launches, dubious alliances and speculations continue to brew. Android OS is increasingly dominating the marketplace, with Apple's iOS attempting to regain momentum and stirring up the media with plenty of rumors. Microsoft's Steve Ballmer and Nokia's Stephen Elop just made a surprise announcement last week to put Windows Phone 7 on future Nokia phones--seemingly a take-over of Nokia and an imminent demise for Symbian and MeeGo--a move that blindsided Intel and slighted Google. And still earlier last week HP/Palm introduced new phones and tablets to push their own webOS platform. The competition's getting rough. Can all the operating systems at least just allow us to truly multitask our apps for now?

webOS 3.0 ENYO SDK Released to Developers

Yesterday was the biggest day HP / Palm have had in a long time, due in no small part to the release of webOS 3.0. This operating system will be working on the several new devices HP announced yesterday including the Palm3, the Veer, and the lovely TouchPad. Today developers for the webOS platform will be able to get their hands on the SDK of the system so they'll be able to begin testing their apps and whatnot out, and so they'll be able to begin creating all new ways to modify, manipulate, and use the new system to their advantage.

HP Veer hands-on

HP Veer hands-on

HP's new Veer may be the entry-level model in the refreshed webOS range, but that doesn't mean it's an unimpressive handset in its own right. The super-compact 2.6-inch smartphone still manages to fit in a sliding QWERTY keyboard, though from what we've seen we wouldn't want to use it for more than simply pecking out the odd email reply. More first impressions after the cut.

HP Pre3 hands-on

The Pre was groundbreaking for Palm, the Pre 2 was too little, too late, and so the Pre3 has a big challenge ahead of it.

Faster, larger and more usable than before; check out our hands-on feedback with the HP Pre3 after the cut.

The wait has been worth it; we've just been checking out the TouchPad after HP's launch event, and it's a slick, solid slate on which webOS scales nicely.

webOS Touch to Share URLs, Calls, and More Between Pre3 and TouchPad

We're live at the webOS 3.0 / Palm / HP event today covering all the news that's blasting forth from the groups, all of it adding up to what seems to be the truth - webOS isn't dead. One of the more interesting features is a touch-to-share function that works between the Pre3 and the TouchPad, and more than likely between every other set of webOS devices in the future so long as they have webOS 3.0. This feature works to share everything from URLs to phone calls, allowing you to use the screen size you need when you need it.
