webOS 1.3.5 on the way says Rubinstein

webOS 1.3.5 on the way says Rubinstein
Faced with the prospect of talking about another poor quarterly report for Palm yesterday, CEO Jon Rubinstein pulled the ol' misdirection play out of his playbook during the conference call as he confirmed that webOS 1.3.5 will be out this month. The upgrade will remove the limit of apps that can be downloaded onto a webOS device, improve the performance of the Pixi, add to the life of the battery and enhance Wi-Fi and apps. No mention was made to improving the performance of the Pre which still behaves in a less than optimal fashion. Let's hope that this doesn't mean that Palm is giving up on its flagship product so soon. It has only been about 6 months and 2 weeks since the latter device was launched and if RIM can turn an Ugly Duckling into a Swan like it did with the first  BlackBerry Storm (just compare the Storm from original launch to now with the 5.0 BlackBerry OS), surely the Pre can come closer to the handset we all thought it would be when announced a little less than a year ago.

maybe palm should take the stick out of their you-know-whats and put an onscreen keyboard on there. nobody thinks its making a statement by not having a touch keyboard...

I just got a pre today... I was skeptical about it not having an on screen keyboard but overall the lack of a on screen qwerty doesn't suppress me. Sure its an add on but not a necessity. The keyboard actually works great. But this phone imo could use some improvements. None in hardware at least to my concern but definitely could use a nice firmware upgrade
