HP has pushed out an WebOS update for its Pre 3 smartphone.

The patch, which takes the (now) open source operating system to 2.2.4, is being pushed out to European and US Pre 3s.

Pre 2s got the upate last week.

HP WebOS 2.2.4 update

HP hasn't said much about 2.2.4 on the Pre 3, but the Pre 2 release saw the addition of Skype - already available on some carriers' tethered Pre 2 and Pre 3s - the ability to share texts and calls with HP's TouchPad tablet, background data encryption and improvements to Google and Yahoo! contact and calendar syncing. ®
