Also releases webOS 2.2.4 for Pre phone owners

HP has posted updates for webOS. It now has webOS 3.0.5 available for owners of the TouchPad, which the company initially launched and then quickly shelved last summer. It's also making a separate release, webOS 2.2.4, available to Pre 2 and Pre 3 smartphone owners.

The release for the TouchPad will be distributed as an over-the-air update. It mostly provides enhancements to e-mail including faster scrolling, attachments saving with draft messages, and an indicator for when a photo has been sent or a sender is available to IM. 3.0.5 also provides support for HTTP Live Streaming and for improved stability while watching videos in the web app. It switches Calendar views faster and improves the handling of MP3s that are transferred from a computer using USB Drive mode.

The 2.2.4 update for smartphones is intended for unlocked Pre 2 and AT&T, Verizon, and unlocked Pre 3 phones. For Pre 2, the update improves Skype voice calling and messaging, and MAP for Bluetooth. For all devices, Messaging, Calendar, and Contacts have been enhanced.
