There are many reasons for Palm owners who have the Pre in Canada to get excited. The main reason is the anticipated update to webOS 1.4 that includes the very much missing ability to record video. On a great device like the Pre it’s very odd that a standard feature these days on a phone like recording video was left out. Back in January at at CES Palm said we could expect an upgrade to webOS 1.4 by the end of February.
Yesterday Palm pushed out the upgrade to 1.4 to “customers on the Sprint network in the US and on the O2 UK, O2 DE, O2 Ireland, and Movistar networks in Europe”. That’s right, us Canadians were left out of the bunch. All Palm stated for the other countries is that “the update is expected to be available for Palm webOS phones on other networks soon.”
Even there’s still a couple days left for Palm to make good on their end of February release, there must be a reason why the second country in the world to launch the Pre was left out. We’ve sent a message to our friends at Palm to get more info.
