Due to a reporting error, the story "HP updates mobile platform with webOS 2.0," posted on Monday, incorrectly stated the availability of the Palm Pre 2 smartphone in Canada. Verizon Wireless does not offer service in Canada, and HP did not mention a specific availability information for the Canadian market.
The second paragraph has been updated and now reads:
HP's new Palm Pre 2 smartphone, which will first be available on Friday in France from wireless carrier SFR, will be the first to ship with webOS 2.0, HP said. The Palm Pre 2 will become available in the coming months in the U.S. through Verizon Wireless and in Canada.
