An update for all the Bell Palm Pre users in Canada… webOS 1.4.5 is now available and Palm states in the release notes that the changes are as follows:
Feature changes to existing applications
System
– This release includes minor fixes and enhancements to support the public release of the webOS Plug-in Development Kit (PDK).
– This release may require you to update certain apps to their latest version to properly support the launch of the webOS PDK. If you have a game that is not saving your game information correctly (high scores, stages, settings) check the App Catalog for updates. For more information on updating apps, see Using App Catalog

Web
– If a user enters text in a field on certain websites, the screen focus now remains on the text being entered.

    It will download when the network isn’t busy. LMMFATFO you need to read the explanation. This has everything to do with the carrier maximizing bandwidth, I’m sure google does this too.
