Palm today released a system software update for the Palm Pre and Pixi for Sprint. The new version of webOS significantly improves the downloading and storage of apps, supporting multiple simultaneous app downloads, downloads in the background, and control over downloads in progress. The update also removes the limit on how much memory can be used for apps. A new feature allows all apps to be updated with one step. Other updates include improved battery life, notifications in landscape mode, plus numerous bug fixes and smaller improvements. Pre ad Pixi owners with Sprint will receive the update automatically.

I appreciate the fact that PS doesn't report rumours.

So many times the rumours don't pan out. While I do read other sites like Engadget and BGR, I always know that the information here at PhoneScoop is confirmed.

WebOS 1.3.5 just open the way for Doom!

Wow just played doom for the first time on my Palm Pre and I must say I'm impressed. I've already double the amount of palm released apps installed on my phone and the changes made to the apps store are big improvements. WebOS just keeps getting better and better! Cool
you should get pre ware. a bit of a pain to get but well worth the trouble.

Want snappy?

Get a Motorola Droid
Samsung Moment is where its at! Razz
Having owned both, I would much rather have the Palm Pre. The Droid is slow, especially surfing the internet (Wi-Fi or no Wi-Fi).

Maybe the Droid is bogging down Verizon's 3G network much like the iPhone is bogging down at&t's network Shocked
I did get a Motorola Droid. It was fast at first but at about week 2 it slowed down to average speed. I wish I still had my pre...

Ia phone scoop on Christmas break?

when are we gonna get some news? There are 256 posts on the Verizon ETF thread already, does that not tell u that we need something else to send us into a new emblazoned frezy of posts? Sidenote: must everything get compared to the pretty MP3 player with a snappy interface and a POS carrier? Plus trust even the iPhone lags too try going from an app to home and then switch over 6 screens fast and let me know what it does my G1 with the MLIGN 3.2 Hero Rom blasts the iPhone out the water from app to app and screen to screen I'm just saying. Cool
It's a slow news week. But yes, we are on semi-break.

Blah blah

ok kool OS update. this still wont fix the speed. This phone is super slow opening anything!! takes so long just to make a phone call
Second that! The phone is a great device but I wish they would improve the speed. It's not as snappy as the iPhone...
First of all the thing is actually pretty snappy. Reports of its lag are, in my mind; a lot like mark twains death, greatly exaggerated.

Second of all, lets say I'm browsing the internet and get an email that I need to respond to and while I'm res...
