Palm webOS, the operating system that powers the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi, has been updated to version 1.4. The update is delivered to customers on the Sprint and Verizon network in the US over the air. It is delivered over the air to European customers on the Movistar network and customers on the O2 network in the UK, Germany, and Ireland. Palm WebOS 1.4 will be delivered to customers on other networks in the near future, explained Communications and Marketing Director with Palm, Jon Zilber.

“The update is expected to be available for Palm webOS phones on other networks soon,” explained Zilber. “Your phone will automatically update within a few days once Palm webOS 1.4 is available on your carrier. You can also trigger the update using the Updates app.”


Thanks to the WebOS 1.4 you can use your Palm Pre to capture, edit and share video. Shooting a video with the Palm Pre is pretty straightforward – you just point the camera at something and shoot. The process of editing the video you just took is equally straightforward. And once you shot something, edited it, you might want to share that video with your friends. With the WebOS1.4 you can easily send the video via email or MMS, or you can upload it to popular social networking site Facebook or popular video sharing site YouTube. Speaking of which, you can watch WebOS’s video capabilities in a video posted to YouTube here.

After you get the WebOS 1.4 update you will notice that the LED in the gesture area lights up and pulses when you have a notification. This works even if the screen is off. This is one of the ways the 1.4 update enhances notifications – but it is not the only one. There are new notification sounds, and notification sounds in Messaging, Email, and Calendar can be customized.

Last but not least, webOS 1.4 helps you get things done faster than before. Jon Zilber explains: “The Calendar, Phone, Messaging, and Email apps have all been enhanced with new features to simplify common tasks (many based on feedback from our customers). For example, in the Calendar app, you can now dial a number that appears in the subject of an appointment. In the Email app, you can now sort by date, sender, and subject. In the Phone app, the Call log offers more options to easily connect to a contact (such as via SMS). And there are some new shortcuts for zipping from one app to another. You’ll also see improved performance in these apps.”
