Sprint webOS 1.4 Update Tomorrow; Flash is Finally Here


Sprint has finally given an ETA on the webOS 1.4 update, which was promised by Palm at CES. The update brings a number of bug fixes, but the most interesting feature would be Adobe Flash 10.0 support for the webOS smartphone, which unfortunately is limited to the Pre only so Pixi users are left out for Flash support.

Sprint has since yanked the post, but it seems that the update will arrive tomorrow and will be available over the air.

Per Sprint’s post, it seems that Flash isn’t included with the update, but the update does add support for the plug-in. After the 1.4 update is installed, users can download Flash 10.0 from the Palm App Catalog.

What’s curious is that Sprint is listing Flash support, for now at 10.0. Adobe had previously touted Flash 10.1 support.
