HP/Palm has quietly posted instructions for using the improved backup utility found in webOS 2.0 for both the the Verizon and Sprint versions of the Palm Pre, which have yet to be updated past version 1.4.5.
With both support documents receiving the updated instructions for the new software version, the rollout for the update is getting closer by the day, though HP/Palm have yet to officially confirm update timelines for any Pre model at this time outside of “in the coming months“.
HP, and Palm before it, announced that all webOS devices would receive an update to webOS 2.0. This will enable Palm’s first wave of webOS devices to embrace applications built for next-generation Palm devices. It will also enable HP to tout better device firmware support than Android manufacturers, which to-date has only reliably been seen from other first-party manufacturers. Primarily, Apple.
