Palm webOS 1.4 for Pre and Pixi should be hitting Sprint soon

Palm Pre and Pixi users on Sprint might be getting a little antsy for the webOS 1.4 update coming soon. There’s nothing like a big OS update with no solid release date to make people jittery with anticipation. Rumors slated the update for February 25, and PreCentral even had hard proof. We’re past that date now and the update has yet to hit, and the source for the rumor has been pulled from the Sprint website. Luckily, before the information mysteriously disappeared from Sprint’s community site, a list of fixes and updates were made available. More good news? It looks like the Palm Pre will be getting some Flash 10.0 treatment with this update. Here is a list of what can be expected from the webOS 1.4 update. Fixes:

  • Time Zone bug fixed
  • Network time sync bug fixed to reflect accurate Network time
  • Bluetooth car-kit transition to device corrected
  • No EV icon bug fixed (random)
  • Random browser formatting bugs fixed
  • Fixed bug that incorrectly displayed Sprint when actually was Digital Roaming
  • Missing Contact issue specifically with swap down to or less

Featured Updates:

  • Phonebook Transfer (import & export)
  • Adds Video Capture capability & edit Calendar Enhancements
  • Messaging Enhancements
  • Improved Performance (Phone & CAL)
  • Email Enhancements
  • Notification Enhancements
  • Adds Adobe Flash 10.0 (Pre Only)
    • NOTE: The 1.4 software adds the ability to use the Flash 10.0 Adobe plug-in which will be available shortly from the Palm App Catalogue

This looks to fix most issues that webOS users might have been having with their handsets. The addition of Flash 10.0 is also a welcome one, even though it’s likely that running Flash could kill battery life, it’s better to have it and not need it. Fingers crossed that the update hits the airwaves tonight! via ZDNet

    Sigh, I’m hooked to twitter readers right now. They genuinely usually do not do much for me personally, on the other hand it just offers me a happy sensation on the inside comprehending that many people are basically, well perhaps reading what I write about.
