Sprint mentions WebOS update, world waits

Though Palm has not yet officially confirmed it, Sprint has posted a support article that says today is the day when WebOS will be updated to version 1.3.5.

Sprint's description of the 1.3.5 update is brief, and lists only four "enhancements" to Palm's flagship operating system:

  • Improvement in battery life optimization when in marginal coverage areas.
  • QCELP capability fix to allow play and audio of video sent via MMS.
  • Launch Google Maps or Sprint Nav when tapping an address from contacts.
  • Minimized package of MR size through binary difference. Customers can now download over 2G connections if necessary.

Palm's support forum does not yet list the changes, and there haven't been any reports on the user side of the over-the-air rollout yet, but generally speaking, Sprint and Palm have released their update notes on the same day, so users remain optimistic that an over-the-air update is coming.

Betanews has contacted Palm for further information on the subject, and we'll update when we hear back.
