webOS 2.2.4

HP may have canceled the Pre 2 smartphone, but the company is still rolling out software updates… for now. This week HP released webOS 2.2.5 for some Pre 2 handsets, adding new features including:

  • Support for Skype voice calls and instant messages
  • Ability to share text messages and calls with an HP TouchPad over Bluetooth
  • Sync improvements for Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, and contacts

Up until now Skype was only available on the HP Pre 3 or the Verizon Pre 2. This udpate brings it to additional webOS phones — but not all Pre 2 phones will get the update.

PreCentral reports the update appears to be available for unlocked European GSM phones, but not unlocked US phones or Verizon phones.
