HP says webOS 2.0 coming to Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Palm Pixi and Pixi Plus in a few months
HP's webOS Developer Day in New York City proved to be quite eventful. Developer Advocate Josh Marinacci told the audience that webOS 2.0 will be coming to all webOS devices in the next few months. Of course, that is great news for owners of the original Palm Pre and Pixi models and their "Plus" follow-ups.

We can't help but notice how the decision to update all of the older handsets results in the the opposite of that naughty fragmentation word that has been plaguing Android going back to the days of Cupcakes, Donuts and Eclairs.

Marinacci's speech is on the video below, so if you want to hear the words for yourself, give it a play. And we just know that everyone is going to be patient and remain calm even though "the next few months" can run anywhere from December-January to next August-September or beyond. We don't want to spoil a good thing, but as we have discovered with the Android updates, it is best not to put too much weight on specific targets based on time.

I am a proud owner of a Pre Plus and prefer WebOs over Android and Blackberry Os. I have had experience with all the mobile Os out there and find WebOs to be my favorite so far. Im waiting for Windows Phone 7 to hit Verizon because I think that has some nice features thats simplified like WebOs.

WebOS is awesome. Its the hardware that needs improvement. We'll see what HP will do next year.

HP is SCREWING OVER every previous generation device over. They LIED to us and abused the trust of the loyal fans who got the Palm name where it is today. I made a video all about it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bs4UDwz0dY
