Last year, HP launched the successor of the original Palm Pre smartphone, the Palm Pre 2. This handset originally runs on the webOS 2.0 and it was later updated to the webOS 2.1. This update was rolled out to the unlocked Palm Pre 2 devices in March, but the Verizon subscribers were left behind. After waiting for months, Verizon has finally started rolling out the webOS 2.1 update to the Verizon Palm Pre 2 smartphones.

Palm Pre 2 features a 3.1 inch HVGA touchscreen display with 320×480 pixels resolution, 1GHz processor, webOS 2.0 OS, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash, Built-in GPS, Stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta, Wi-Fi, 16GB of internal memory, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, Microsoft Exchange, 5.5 hours of talktime and much more.

The new webOS 2.1 update comes with Voice Dial, Support for Bluetooth keyboards, Backup changes, Email fixes and much more. This update also fixes a number of security issues with HP webOS software. It comes with a new Exhibition feature which turns on automatically when your smartphone is placed on a Touchstone charging dock. The Exhibition feature gives you access to special applications such as Time (clock app), Photos (photo slide show), and Agenda (agenda view).

You may have to wait for few days or even for few weeks before this update is available in your region. Have you received this update on your Palm Pre 2 smartphone? Let us know in our new comments section below.
