Palm cannot deliver webOS 1.2 to GSM Pre until November
If you are waiting to get your hands on the GSM Palm Pre with webOS 1.2 in Europe when the Palm Pre launches on O2 Germany, Ireland and the UK on the 13th to 16th of October as it looks like you’re going to be somewhat disappointed as precentral reports webOS 1.2 may not hit until November.
Apparently the Palm Pre launch will start out carrying webOS 1.1.3 and will not receive the update to webOS 1.2 until November. Furthermore there is rumour that the Palm Pre may not even come carrying webOS 1.1.3 but webOS 1.1.2 and require updating.
If this rumour is true it means all kinds of problems for the webOS platform, Europeans won’t benefit from webOS 1.2 and the fear is Palm is coming to a point where they are overextended and unable to release webOS on multiple versions at the same time.
