Sprint says Palm Pre, Pixi webOS 1.4 update will drop soon

Although there's been some back and forth about whether or not it's going to happen, Sprint has said that there will be a Palm Pre and Pixi webOS 1.4 update available some time today or tomorrow - maybe.

Although there's been some back and forth about whether or not it's going to happen, Sprint has said that there will be a Palm Pre and Pixi webOS 1.4 update available some time today or tomorrow - maybe.

Earlier this week, a post from a Sprint employee popped up on Sprint's discussion boards stating that the webOS 1.4 updates would be ready by February 25, and PreCentral has the screenshot to prove it. Well, if you look at Sprint's website now, that post is long gone.

Now it looks like it might be ready as soon as today. Some internal Sprint documents are circulating the web, popping up on both PreCentral and Engadget from an anonymous source, that the long-awaited webOS update will be available some time Friday evening.

Here's a quick look at a few of the fixes and upgrades this release will include:

Fixes:

  • Time Zone bug fixed
  • Network time sync bug fixed to reflect accurate Network time
  • Fixed bug that incorrectly displayed Sprint when actually was Digital Roaming
  • Random browser formatting bugs fixed

Updates:

  • Phonebook Transfer (import & export)
  • Adds Video Capture capability & edit
  • Calendar and Messaging Enhancements
  • Email & Notification Enhancements
  • Adds Adobe Flash 10.0 (Pre Only)
  • Improved Performance (Phone & CAL)

Why do Sprint and Palm need to be so secretive though? It's just a firmware update, not a product release. I get it if they don't want to look bad in case the update needs to be delayed, but posting it online, then removing it,  and finally republishing it again looks silly after awhile.
