PreCentral: Two years later, webOS 1.4.5 update finally comes to the Telcel Palm Pre

Recommended Posts

Two years later, webOS 1.4.5 update finally comes to the Telcel Palm Pre

There are some things that we never expect to see happen. We're talking tortoise riding a unicorn type stuff here. That's the level of make-believe upon which we had stashed the thought of webOS 1.4.5 ever getting released for the Palm Pre on Telcel. Like the Sprint Pre, the Telcel webOS phone was all but abandoned as far as updates were concerned, but it was abandoned at webOS 1.4.1.

Unlike Apple, which has managed to somehow wrest control of updates away from the carriers, Palm still had to depend on carrier testing before their updates could get released. Somewhere along the line the ball was dropped when it came to the version of webOS 1.4.5 intended to be released onto Telcel's Pre. We had written if off long before HP wrote off getting webOS 2.0 onto older devices.

And this week, that's changed. webOS Nation reader Alberto wrote to let us know that his Palm Pre on Telcel had received and successfully installed an update to webOS 1.4.5. So, what do the remaining Telcel Pre users get for their nearly two-year wait for the 1.4.5 update? We're assuming it's the same set of changes as were included in webOS 1.4.5 from 1.4.1 back in June 2010, so we're talking about improved PDK support, browser text field focusing, fixed podcast downloads, and some security patches. Hope it was worth the wait.

All things considered, that the Telcel Pre got the update at all is a miracle, though we're throughly perplexed as to why it took so long. We contacted HP for more info about the update - mostly to confirm it and make sure we weren't dealing with a randomly distributed test update or something of the like - and they were just as confused as we were. So we'll just enjoy the hilarity of it all - at least webOS phones aren't still being sold with outdated software like our Android compatriots have to deal with. Granted, they still have phones being sold at all, so they've got that over us.

    • Question: Anyone else having issues with the WebOS?

      Hi everyone, I’m new on here and just trying to figure out what is going on with my TV. It’s a 65” E8 that I purchased new back in March of last year. I never really had any issues until recently (a month or so). I updated the OS as usual and honestly didn’t pay much attention until the next day I was attempting to login to WebOS and I keep getting “LG CONTENT STORE: Content is unavailable. No content”. I always keep it updated and had Geek Squad do a calibration on it about 3 months ago; which

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog
