1.4? WebOS is currently at 1.1.0. This version does add NFL Mobile. You can find the most current version information, as current as Palm posts it, here.

Op stated that he was.

This is the changelog to 1.1

Changed sound for notifications - You still can’t change them yourself, but the new sound is much richer, if a little quieter
Animated drop down menus - they look really slick and really change the experience. The Context menus also have some nice animation.
Lots of Photo app improvements. A more distinct bar between all photos and your albums in the photo app, plus they’re calling the Screenshot album “Screen Captures.” The preview thumbs also slide in from the right. Faster photo rendering. Overall the Photos app feels much more fully baked.
Emailing Memos - The memo app now has a menu option to email a memo.
A new font for the Browser - uses Palm’s system font and, truly, it looks fantastic.
Disabled the key combo in browser to open in a new card. Boo-urns.
Javascript interpreter Performance upgrades - this will speed up virtually everything and is great news
Better Gmail handling - not failing when you tap on a notification for an email you’d already archived on the desktop
A new icon for AIM
More auto-complete / auto correct entries in the dictionary.
With the slider open, the Center button now turns on the screen, where as before you had to hit a keyboard key or the power button.

Re: New Update
I am anxious for the update that adds video recording,"official" on screen kb, ability to easily change sounds independently, etc etc.

webOS 1.1.0

Version information

  • Version: webOS 1.1.0
  • Release date: 23 July 2009
  • Configuration: Sprint 1.7
New applications

NFL Mobile Live from Sprint

  • Watch or listen to live NFL games right on your phone.
Feature changes to existing applications


  • For Calendar accounts you create on your phone, the default reminder intervals are 15 minutes for timed events and one day for all-day events. A few notes:
    • This change applies only if software version 1.1 was on your phone when you bought it, or if you did a partial or full erase on your phone and signed in to your Palm profile again after updating to version 1.1. If you simply update your phone to software version 1.1, the default reminder intervals in Calendar do not change.
    • This change applies only to Calendar events you create on your phone, not to events that are synchronized to your phone from an online account.

  • The Photos application opens more quickly when launched from the camera.

  • Enhanced support for time zones in Clock.
  • When you set an alarm in Clock, an alarm icon appears in the notification area at the bottom of the screen. Tap the icon to display alarm details. Alarm details include the following:
    • If the alarm is set for the current day, the alarm time appears.
    • If the alarm is set for tomorrow, the alarm time and "Tomorrow" appear.
    • If the alarm is set for any day other than today or tomorrow, the day of the alarm appears.

  • Friends added and deleted in Facebook on the web are now correctly added and deleted in the Facebook account in Contacts on the phone.
  • As soon as you create or makes changes to a Google contact on the phone, the phone begins a sync to reflect those changes in Google on the web.

  • When you set up an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email account, you can enter the mail server name as an IP address.
  • Support for self-signed certificates with multiple common names has been added.
  • When you reply to an email in HTML format using an EAS account, the formatting of the sender's original message is now retained in the reply.
  • Sending messages using an AOL email account now works more reliably.
  • If your IT administrator enables the IMAP protocol on a Lotus Notes server, you can set up an IMAP Notes email account on your phone. Note that Lotus Notes calendar events and contacts do not sync with your phone.
  • If your EAS account requires a domain, changing your password for this account no longer deletes the domain (which caused the account login to fail).
  • If you create a new message but enter the wrong recipient email address, after you attempt to send the message, a notification appears that the message could not be sent. The message is moved to your Drafts folder so that you can edit the recipient address and resend.
  • If you create a new label in your Gmail account on the web, the label now synchronizes to your phone. The label appears as a folder in your Gmail account on the phone, and any messages you assigned to that label appear inside the folder.
  • If you attach a file to a new message and save the message as a draft, the draft is saved with the attachment.
  • Palm's EAS implementation now supports several Exchange ActiveSync Policies, including the following:
    • PIN/Password Required. IT administrators can ensure a password is assigned to the phone. Administrators can also specify the minimum length of the password.
    • Inactivity timeout. IT administrators can ensure that an inactive phone goes into a locked state after a certain time period. You cannot set a higher timeout interval for your phone, but you can set a shorter interval.
    • Remote Wipe. IT Administrators can remotely erase all data on a phone from their Exchange console. IT administrators can also have the device wipe itself if an incorrect password is entered more than a specified number of times.

  • You can enter emoticons in new text, multimedia, and instant messages. Emoticons also display in incoming messages.
  • If you set the phone to use a 24-hour time format, the message times shown in a conversation appear in 24-hour time.
  • If you go into an IM account's preferences, all the options are available even if you are signed in to the account. You can tap Remove Account to delete the account, enter a new password to update the password, or tap Sign In to sign in with your updated password. Previously, you needed to sign out of the account before you could use these preferences.
  • When you delete an IM account, a message now appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the account.

  • When multiple missed call notifications are displayed on the dashboard, the time of the most recent missed call is shown.
  • When you slide the ringer switch off, a bell icon with a slash is displayed. Previously, the icon was a speaker with a slash.
  • In Phone Preferences, the Show Contact Matches preference is now turned on by default. When typing on the keyboard in the phone app, the phone automatically displays both the numbers being entered and any contact matches for the characters entered.
  • You can now answer a second incoming call if you have Secure Unlock turned on. Secure Unlock requires you to enter a password to unlock the phone if the screen turns off. You can turn this feature on in the Screen & Lock preference.

  • Improved functionality of person reminders. A person reminder is a notification that you create in a contact entry. The notification appears when you have a call or exchange an email, text, multimedia, or IM message with a contact.
  • Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1).
  • When you enter a search term in Card view or the Launcher to perform a universal search, if you select the Wikipedia web search option, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.

  • You can now use symbols from the symbols table (Sym http://www.palm.com/us/assets/images...con_CasS09.gif + key) when you enter text into a web page dialog box.
  • If you have a page open at a certain zoom level, leave the page, and use the onscreen Back http://www.palm.com/us/assets/images...con_CasS09.gif button or the back gesture to return to the page, the zoom level is restored right away.
  • A new gesture is now available that works the same as the onscreen Forward http://www.palm.com/us/assets/images...con_CasS09.gif button. To move forward through open web pages, make a short swipe left to right in the gesture area.
  • When using the Wikipedia drop-down search feature in the address bar, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.
  • When you tap a link, the link appears highlighted to indicate it has been activated, even if it takes a moment for the linked page to open.
