By on February 22nd, 2011

At the beginning of this month, HP announced a slew of new webOS based devices including three handsets and a tablet.   The company also announced that the Palm Pre Plus won’t get the update to the latest version of webOS i.e. v2.1.

Now, in a surprise move, HP has rolled out the webOS 2.1 OTA (Over-The-Air) firmware package for the O2 branded Pre Plus handsets in the U.K as well as in Germany. Palm Pre Plus owners who love to tinker around with their phone can download and install the update manually as well.

The update has been confirmed to work on unlocked Pre Pre Plus handsets as well. Sadly, the update won’t work on CDMA based Pre Plus handsets.

Palm Pre Plus owners can download the latest version of HP webOS doctor from here. The software will then update your Pre Plus to the latest version of webOS.

It is still unknown whether HP/Palm will release a webOS 2.1 OTA update for the CDMA based Pre Plus handsets in the United States.
