This date seems to tie in nicely with Palm developer Josh Marinacci’s November announcement, stating that web2.0 OS will be landing on all Palm devices in “coming months”. Of course, when we say all, this doesn’t include outdated handsets such as the Treo 650, and we expect the update will be landing on the Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Pixi and the Pixi Plus.
However, it could be even better news for Palm owners. According to webOS en Castellano, the current generation of Palm and Pixi handsets will skip webOS 2.0, and be upgraded straight to 2.1. Details about the updated platform are sparse, although it’s thought that the Palm logo will be removed, and replaced with HP‘s branding.
Once Palm handsets are updated, we can expect them to be equipped with Adobe Flash 10.1 support, true multitasking, social networking integration and Just Type, which allows users to type out an email or text message without having to open the app.
The Tweet from O2 Germany doesn’t reveal a specific time frame for the update, so it could make an appearance any time between January and March 2011.
