Staying old and not in touch with fresh updates can spell doom for certain handsets. There has been a steady trend in phone manufacturers releasing updates to enhance the experience or fix certain bugs that might be causing havoc. This is especially true most recently with the Apple iPhone and BlackBerry Storm. But it looks like Palm will be following the same footsteps by offering free updates for their much anticipated Palm Pre. There was a document that was leaked which hints to Palm providing periodical new software features which will be free of charge to customers owning a webOS product. This is surprising news when knowing that Palm was notorious in the past for not offering software enhancements to their products. We’ve seen how important it is to release these updates to provide long term use. Additionally, it will be a plus to wireless carriers who intend to keep older device as part of their product lineup.
