Look for Palm webOS 1.4 on February 25th

Posted By on February 24, 2010

Palm Pre and Pixi users have known about and seen many of the new feature in webOS 1.4 demos (flash, video recording) for some time; most of us have been waiting patientlyUpdate App for the announced February 2010 rollout.

According to most blogs and newsy Internet sites, the webOS devices on both Sprint and Verizon networks should look for updates this week. The earlier Sprint rumored February 15th date has passed and the new date being bantered around is February 25th. I’ll be watching the Official Palm Blog, my Update App and for Palm oriented ‘tweets’ for the release.
