UPDATE: Palm to release webOS 1.4.5 for the Pre, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 23:20 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

According to our information, Palm will soon release a webOS update for its GSM Pre, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. While the Palm Pre and Palm Pre Plus update only feature minor bugfixes, the Palm Pixi Plus update is even more important and interesting. It will allow the use of 3D games and applications on the Palm Pixi Plus (as so far only available for the Palm Pre and Palm Pre Plus). Last but not least, the update will improve the webOS Plug-In Development Kit (PDK) compatibility and performance of the Pre, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus which is a new component of the Palm webOS SDK that lets developers use C and C++ alongside the web technologies that power the SDK.
