    OK...one of the BEST things about owning a webOS phone is the continuity between devices. Any OS update goes out to ALL webOS phones! Some get it sooner than others, based on carrier release, but we ALL get it. NO fragmentation!!

    Also, unlike Apple, OS updates that add functionality, a la VIDEO RECORDING, don't require the purchase of a whole new device! This is one of the MANY reasons I LOVE webOS!!

    Well, while cruising the 'net for ANY news I could find on the Pre 2...I came across this STARTLING quote from Product Review News:

    "I must admit this photo disappoints me slightly as it isn’t a lot different to the original Pre, therefore it seems as if webOS 2.0 may be the real reason to buy the Pre 2, don’t forget this updated OS will not be coming to any existing Palm devices."

    I hope this guy is just an *****!

    "...updated OS will not be coming to any existing Palm devices"?!?

    I would SWEAR when Palm broke with the info on webOS 2.0 recently, they said the update would push to ALL webOS devices...as is the norm!!

    Anyone have any ideas, clarifications, or official stances from Palm on this issue? I will be one EXTREMELY unhappy webOS fan if this IS the case!!!

    Praying for a misquote,

    Yea, I'm pretty sure Palm said webOS 2.0 would be available for all devices. Don't believe everything you read on the internet...

    Palm just gave pre pluses to devs, I doubt they would do that if webOS 2.0 wouldn't work on them!!!

    ya, ease up on the drama pills mate, i'm sure we're safe...especially since HP was giving away Pre's to employees and all...

    Kind of an over-reaction there... Palm has stated that 2.0 will be an upgrade for ALL devices, not just new ones. Whoever it is you quoted simply didn't do any research. Nothing to get excited about.

    wait, but I just read this on the internet, therefore I shouldn't believe, and thus should believe everything I read on the internet......but then that means I shouldn't believe the internet..which means.. Ouch, my head hurts.

    I think webos 2.0 will of course be coming out for current palm devices, the question is will we get all the feature?
    iPhone 4s 64gb for personal, at&t Prē 3 for business. Best of both worlds.

    While I feel confident that 2.0 will be backward compatible, I'm not so sure that's such a good idea in one respect. The original Pre is almost two years old since announcement. The OS should have advanced enough in two years so that at least some of its features will not work on existing hardware.

    If Palm is holding back software advancement for fear of leaving behind two year old tech, that is a problem.

    You can expect an Apple-like model. That's previous gen devices updated to the inmediately next big webOS update.

    I’m on Verizon – so 2.0 update will be months after it is released on “ALL” existing devices. I hope that in the future – Palm & HP will continue to keep webOS versions backward compatible even as new hardware is introduced. An operating system should be able to detect the hardware configuration and turn off or on those features that it needs to work properly on the device.

    Link?
    I don't understand the purpose of the line, “I don't need to drink to have fun.” Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

    Let's all give thanks to the app that started it all.

    webOS 2.0 is all about making things work on less RAM, example, the rumored removal, of the JVM which will make the email/phone/messaging apps much faster, and boot up time will be faster, .. Point is the newer technologies Palm (actually the entire web community) is implementing are supposed to be more compact, less CPU intensive, less battery drain.

    Do you think all those fancy features in webOS 2, like multiple cards etc,, are going to run smoothly on a 1st generation non-overclocked Pre?

    Yep. It's not much different than how the cards system works now. Which other features were you talking about? I've played around with the current build of webOS 2.0 and haven't noticed anything that could possibly cause problems.

    I love to repeat myself on this question:

    You will be very impressed, when webOS 2.0 hits your 'old' Pre(+) devices.
    Neither the Pre(+) CPU nor the GPU nor twebOS itself is slow.
    It's just the way these parts interact with each other, what is somewhat inefficient.

    Could they have done it with webOS 1.0? No. The html5 technology this will use, was not yet available, nowhere.


    It's all just about using the ressources efficiently. Speed, Smoothiness, Battery Life. So don't mess up your current hardware while anticipating a new one: When webOS 2.0 hits, you might suddenly want to use it much longer than you think now.

    ;-)

    June 2009 to October 2010 is 1 year and 4 months. 4 months is not a year, nor even a half a year.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Some people say that the Pre's life began when it was announced in January 2009.
