It's saying it's not available 1.3.5.1 is still the latest

I believe it's (currently) available to only Sprint customers (and select European carriers).

Thanks for the info on this Frail.

My sister owns the Palm Pre Plus I gave to her and hopefully this will address some of her current gripes she has with it.

Flash on the app store yet? Tried searching for it a few hours ago and couldn't find it.

Adobe hasn't made Flash available yet. They promised it sometime in the first half of 2010. 1.4 provides the ability to support Flash when it's ready (Pre only at this time).

I downloaded it on the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus today.
Total time for download and installation was about an hour.

My Pixi Plus battery lasts a bit longer but it's still not great.

How is the general interface speed in the new release?

Things run noticeably faster on my Pixi Plus, but the overall interface is still slower than other smart phones. Apps still launch slowly but once they're up and running it's pretty smooth.

1.4 has delivered a dramatic performance boost in my opinion along with tons of enhancements. I'm a huge fan of the way that Palm supports their hardware and I continue to believe that WebOS is currently the best mobile operating system.

I think WebOS is the best also.....and I don't even own a WebOS phone yet.
Im still waiting for a more desireable form factor for me.

Just Checked Updates on my Bell Pre and am downloading 1.4 as we speak

noticed a decent speed bump in menus and overall performance immediately., battery life still seems lame, still have odd bugs here and there.. like today I couldnt delete any of my photos, I would hit the trash can but the delete/cancel window never popped up. Restart fixed it. Also noticing some lag still, where the touch screen becomes unresponsive, and then has to catch up.

I did my update on a new phone with nothing installed before update. Love webos, better than I liked android, but the lack of apps might make me switch to the N1 when released on Verizon. I also wish there was a real on screen keyboard so I didnt always have to slide out the keypad.

My second phone, which is an iphone 3gs still seems like the king of the hill imo.. its really hard to beat.
