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.
The webOS 1.4.5 update will be something around 12 MB and will be distributed as an over the air update (OTA). It should be available as a manual update on request or distributed in the upcoming days automatically.
It's yet not known, if the webOS 1.4.5 update will be offered for North American Pre/Pre Plus and Pixi/Pixi Plus but it's most likely.
UPDATE: The webOS 1.4.5 update is expected to be rolled-out tonight (CET)! So better keep your Pre/Pre Plus/Pixi Plus charged to get it anytime tomorrow morning.
