Yahoo IM mystery continues, found on webOS 1.1 Pre
This just continues to get more and more weird. Reader JC recently found himself in need of a new Pre and stopped by his local Best Buy to pick up a brand new unit. He booted up his new phone, found that it was running webOS 1.1.0, and then discovered that there was an option for Yahoo Instant Messenger in the Messaging app. We frankly are at a loss as to why some Pre owners gained Yahoo access with 1.2 and others didn’t, but the strangeness was just kicked up a notch by a webOS 1.1 Pre coming with Yahoo support right out of the box.
Either way, we know it's coming officially by the end of the year, as it was announced alongside the Pixi.
