Thanks for the heads up Ingo.
I can confirm it works!
My new Pi 2 arrived just after I read your post. I installed ubuntu linaro (raspbuntu):
I was able to get a full developmant system setup on the new Pi within a couple of hours. In fact I am writing this post using the new Pi2 with Firefox installed. linaro comes with Chromium browser pre-installed I also have java-re installed to run my Python IDE and of course OSPi is working great on it.
