Back in January, Palm announced to open its European App Catalog for paid apps as well and at that time Palm said that it was planned to go live in March 2010. Fast-forward - O2 Germany today announced via Twitter that tonight Palm will release a "mini update to enabled paid apps for the Palm Pre". While this was an announcement from O2 Germany only, it's most likely that Palm will release the same "mini update" (which should be available as the typical OTA download from Palm) for the UK, Ireland and Spain as well. This update will allow Palm Pre users to purchase webOS applications from Palm's App Catalog and should therefore increase the number of available applications.

Neither Palm nor O2 or Telefónica have given further information but if the info is correct, European Palm Pre users should get access to a lot more applications tomorrow morning.

UPDATE: webOS 1.4.1 for the European Palm Pre is now available as a free over the air (OTA) download.

Cheers ~ Arne
