The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The Pre smartphone will be refreshed with an updated webOS “within the next few days”, manufacturer Palm has promised.

A Pré update is due within days

Customers of Telefonica – that’s O2 to you and me – in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Spain will be automatically updated from WebOS 1.1.3 to version 1.3.1 when within range of a Wi-Fi or 3G signal. No action is required on the user’s part, Palm stressed.

Released in North America earlier this month, webOS 1.3.1 adds support for LinkedIn contacts to the Pre, in addition to a Yahoo! calendar and contacts.

The updated OS will also bring “improvements” in e-mail and messaging, such as the ability to forward messages in the Messaging application, Palm added.

Other treats bundled into version 1.3.1 include a Facebook application and “more options for using your Palm Pre in corporate EAS environments”.

Further information about the update process is available online now.
