Palm's Josh Marinacci confirmed yesterday that HP/Palm intends to get webOS 2.0 on all, that's right all, existing webOS devices. Marinacci stated that all webOS devices would be receiving the highly anticipated webOS 2.0 in "coming months", so customers shouldn't have to wait too much longer. This release date is still pretty vague, but many people are excited to see that none of the current webOS devices are going to be left out. However, different things that seem to affect carriers could hinder webOS 2.0 for some people as support for webOS from a lot of carriers is at an all time low.
If you are looking to or are interested in creating apps with features from webOS 2.0, then you will be pleased to hear that you can get into the Early Access Program. You will want to do this because the webOS 2.0 SDK is currently under a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which means it is not available to the public, which is strange considering the fact that webOS 2.0 devices, such as the Palm Pre 2, are currently being shipped.
However, when HP starts sending out OTA updates to existing phones, we should see the SDK leave its beta stage, becoming available to the general public. But, until that happens it seems we will have to wait and see what interesting and cool apps developers are going to make. Until the SDK is out of beta we will not be able to know what Synergy, Just Type and Exhibition-compatible apps are coming out.
Many people are very excited and are giving a lot of praise to both HP and Pre for committing to a solid, non-fragmented platform that spans across all of their devices which includes the Sprint Pixi and the crazy unlocked Palm Pre 2 by bringing the webOS 2.0 which, like I said above, should be arriving "in the coming months."
