Well it looks like owners of the Pre2 are getting an over-the-air update - webOS 2.2.4 is now available! I'm hoping this means that an update to my poor veer can't be far behind! I'm not at all fussed about Touch-to-Share with the TouchPad but would really like Skype on my phone. A member of the Precentral forums has managed to get a system image of 2.2.3 off a Veer that was sold on Ebay and another image of 2.2.4 from a European Veer that escaped the lab and has posted instructions on how to run the update yourself manually.
I've downloaded all the files and saved his instructions in case they get removed but I think I'll wait a bit to see if HP release it officially first - I'm hoping the fact that they're updating the older Pre2 means that the Veer can't be too far behind. If nothing shows up over the next few months I'll take the plunge and update anyway :-)
Here's hoping that HP are still pressing on with development!*
*There is also talk going around of an update to the TouchPad (3.0.5) which I also hope comes true... I'll believe it when I see it!
