O2 Germany's Palm Pre Plus is graced with webOS 2.1
Literally unexpected and out of nowhere, especially when HP gave little hope to it, but the Palm Pre Plus is surprisingly seeing light of webOS 2.1 – but it seems to be good only for O2 Germany’s model. However, that’s not stopping some people from taking it to other versions.

Right now, there is a new firmware package available for download for those sporting O2 Germany’s Palm Pre Plus – which interestingly enough will offer the most up-to-date webOS experience. Version 2.1 brings forth some highly anticipated features like exhibition mode, improved Synergy, new launcher, and stacked cards. However, it seems like Flash support is still missing in action. Furthermore, reports already indicate that App Catalog 2.0 is up and running as well.

And from the sound of it all, Vodafone Palm Pre Plus owners can safely install the software update as well without any worries about things dramatically going bonkers in the short term. Naturally, it’s nice to see this thing going very well for some people, but let’s hope that the update makes its way overseas to other markets.

this is huge news. i really hope they let this come to verizon. i would probably be selling my ppp within a few weeks or months if they do, but it might make my phone an easier sell on craigslist if nothing else.
