    I'm pretty sure it won't.

    Edit:
    Unless I somehow manage to activate it in the UK with a UK carrier sim...

    According to this article, if you got a UK prepaid SIM (from ebay) and activated it in your country you could still access the UK catalog...i.e. you don't need to be in the UK to get access to the UK catalog, just have a UK carrier SIM presumably with Roaming.

    Update: According to this thread http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...utside-uk.html the Palm support page above is incorrect. You have to be IN a supported country to get access to the App catalog.

    In the WebOS 2.0 Doctor thread they have concluded that the carriersettings.db3 file is gone!

    It will be interesting to know, apart from the AppCatalog issue, if the number of carrier networks providing data connectivity working out of the box has been improved. If not, what procedure to use to add carrier network settings?

    Please report and good luck!

    Any questions feel free to ask but this is a great step up from my Pre Minus!

    that will not work (see the thread on activation outside the UK http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...utside-uk.html)
    despite what is written on the palm site, if you ever want access to paid apps the phone would have to be activated with a UK sim WHILST IN THE UK.

    These are my thoughts so far. In no particular order:

    Please note that I have NOT activated this device yet. I'm going to think about this for a while. It's a one shot deal after all.

    Just type = Awesome! (and you can opt-swipe now )

    Slider: Contrary to other reports of the slider being better, I can't find any indication that the slider has changed. It looks the same and feels pretty much the same as my pre plus.

    MMS with Telia: Still does not work. Have not hunted down any database with carrier settings yet.

    Preware works. Internalz and Terminal does not yet.

    You can't turn the spell check off. There's red dotted lines everywhere! Very annoying. I do a fair share of typing in Swedish and my ClassicNotes database is filled with notes containing technical jibberish.

    It feels faster. Much smoother UI action than a Pre clocked at 800 MHz.

    The sym-tables are bit reorganized and the Swedish layout is gone. You can use one from an earlier version of WebOS, though.

    I REALLY miss ubercalendar. There is not much change to the core PIM apps.

    Let's hope the manual settings have been made more advanced so that it will allow change of port numbers.

    Had to change the Telia MMS settings in the db3 as it wasnt possible using manual settings page.

    This could get interesting.

    Looks like there is carrier specific stuff in /etc/carrierdb/carrierdb.json

    I finally decided to activate my Palm Pre 2. And I've got apps. Free apps.

    I doctored it and activated in Sweden with a Swedish Telia SIM with language set to UK/English and created a brand spanking new Palm profile.

    I'm still on WebOS 2.0.0, though and it is not updating to 2.0.1.
