PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless HP/Palm has officially released HP webOS 2.0 and the Pre 2, and Engadget has the first review of webOS 2.0 (not of the Pre 2, their device was a pre-production model). "Despite some issues, webOS 2.0 is probably neck and neck with iOS4 when it comes to polish and ease of use, and that's a pretty huge thing for Palm. This isn't just a good OS, it's a great OS, and the updates in this version have made it even better. It's obvious that when combined with even slightly better hardware, it's also a fast experience that makes it easy to get real work done."

I'm interested to know, definitively, whether or not an update to WebOS 2.0 will be made available for the original Palm Pre.

Facts, please--not opinion blogs. Has anyone come across any clear statements from HP/Palm or carriers on this? Links? Perhaps I've overlooked, but I have not seen any official statements clarifying. Thanks!

Ars is reporting that, "The Palm Pre 2 will ship with webOS 2.0. HP says that existing users of webOS devices will receive an over-the-air update to the new version in the coming months."
