WebOS 1.4.1 comes out of nowhere and hitting some devices already?
Out of the blue, it looks like WebOS 1.4.1 has started to roll out to certain devices – but signs point to a to a limited European launch so far. Interestingly enough, some may perceive it to be nothing too major, but it does offer some minor bug fixes for background multi-tasking, compatibility for paid international apps, and the ability to use Mobile Hotspot – some goodies for our friends across the big pond. Although the update appears to be limited to O2 customers in Germany and the UK for the mean time, there was a Sprint user in Washington that surprisingly said that he received it – so it's still a bit unclear as to who this roll out is actually affecting. It seems like the US is still in the dark for the most part, except for that one individual that somehow got it - but hopefully it'll get released to the masses soon enough.

yeah I just received the update for my pre as well. (us sprint here) I'm guessing they just released it for sprint. Vzw should get there's in the next few days. But then again vzw slacks on putting updates out so I'm not sure.

I wonder what the difference is in 1.4.1 and I have Sprint and am currently downloading the update as well. I'm hoping the extra .1 isnt to keep Mobile Hotspot disabled on my phone.

The Sprint Pre does not have the mobile hotspot feature. It wasn't built in to the hardware.
