After Sprint failed to roll out the long awaited webOS 1.4 update for the Palm Pre last week despite their internal confirmation, new information has surfaced confirming the roll out for this week.Â As Palm previously stated a February release for the update during CES, Palm has until Sunday, February 28th to keep to that timeline.
The 1.4 update will enable support for native applications and development, 3D gaming and on-board video recording/editing. The update will also enable Flash 10.1 compatibility, but full Flash support will be rolled out in another update.
The Palm PDK, expected in the 1.4 update, is a major improvement to the webOS platform. It delivers real-time applications that parallel Apple’s iOS. Palm hopes the added functionality will enable webOS to compete more directly with Apple, and provide competitive advantage over Google’s Android platform.
