Palm hasn’t been doing particularly well recently, with failing shipments – which is a crying shame, and something partially to do with their marketing team I feel, especially when users are creating better adverts than they are.

However the 1.4 made some excellent updates and now 1.4.1 has arrived in the UK, which adds the support for Paid Apps to be purchased from the Palm App Catalog. Hopefully this will help fuel developers to create more apps for this excellent device.

It’s also reported that 1.4.1 also enables Mobile Hotspot for O2 customers. Mobile Hotspot can be downloaded from the Pre App Catalog and supports secure WPA/WPA2 connections for up to five devices, with a range claimed to extend out to 50 meters.
