    So Pre Plus owners are getting the update to 2.1 and we are stuck at 2.0.1?

    Something's not right..

    I don't see it as a big deal. HP has a firestorm on its hands right now and they have to deal with it. That release was a step in the right direction. I am sure 2.1 will come soon enough to the Pre 2's. The best part for those who bought them from HP is that the updates will come straight from them. No carrier to wait on. Not to mention 2.1 doesn't bring a ton of new stuff with it. Just a couple of things really and a few bug fixes I am sure.
    Clicking the Thanks button is a great way to say... well THANKS

    .... ? exhibition isn't in 2.0 or 2.0.1, it isn't expected until 2.1 which based on the topic of this thread... hasn't been released to the Pre 2 yet.

    I don't need any new feature on the Pre 2. I'm just craving for some bugs to be fixed ASAP!

    so if it's possible (and now happening) that legacy hardware is getting 2.1 ...why is it that HP isn't able to roll it out to sprint/vzw/at&t pre owners? Is it because the carriers don't want to do it? Or HP?

    We haven't seen it rolled out to any original Pre devices yet, have we? I'd bet myself that it's a mix of carriers not wanting to do it, and the fact that it's harder to have things working on the original Pre with less RAM, but maybe they'll prove me wrong.

    But yeah, the carriers would have to test and support it, and for a phone that's approaching two years old, I'm not surprised they don't want to do that. Yes, Apple can upgrade its phones still after that long, but they've had a lot of exceptions already over the years, so it's a little different there.

    well, froyo only just came out for the epic... i'm sure that's not samsung's decision. so obviously if HP could push an update to everyone, it would but the carrier is involved in there somewhere what with carrier checks and authentication and profiles and so on. also, I would assume that (certainly) at&t doesn't care about its webOS userbase, it doesn't make them any money, and looking at how verizon's been treating the pre 2 of late, it doesn't care about them either. I think it's probable that 2.1 will really not run acceptably on a pre-, so sprint doesn't have any reason to either.
    i'd say at this point our best bet is rwhitby.

    honestly i tihnk its verizon, it took the 3 months longer to update to 1.45 compared to sprint. i wish there was a way to load it from your pc and just bypass the verizon thing..

    the short answer is that the carriers dont feel the need to invest in the update.
    the longer one i think also has to do with liability issues. forexample in order for legacy phones to get updated they will need to be doctored. Now even with the warning stating HP and verizon or sprint are not responsible for what happens, who's ever phone does not wake up from the update wont care and things may happen.... its annoying there are many issues and after much thought i couldnt agree more with HP to just look forward. they need their new hardware out asap!

    Yup from my understanding it's just for GSM models.

    Yeah seriously. Logically it makes no sense that HP/PAlm would have webOS 2.1.0 ready for a 'legacy' device while they don't for their 'only' current device. The only logical reason I can think of why HP has not released webOS 2.1.0 for the unlocked Pre 2 is that Verizon has just started to sell the Pre 2 with webOS 2.0.1 and HP does nto want to **** off Verizon and their Pre 2 customers by making webOS 2.1.0 avaialble for the unlocked GSM Pre 2. We all know how slow Verizon is with approving firmware updates, which can only mean that Pre 2 owners, including those with an unlocked GSM Pre 2 have a wait a long time before will see an update to webOS 2.1.0 for the Pre 2. So much for the theory that we will get quicker updates now that there is no carrier involved with the unlocked GSM Pre 2.

    I'll add my AMEN! to that. An update to the bug infested webOS 2.0.1 was needed, like yesterday.
