Palm 1.3.5 coming soon according to CEO
Palm chief Jon Rubinstein during the company's latest quarterly results confirmed the existence of what's likely to be the 1.3.5 update for the Pixi and Pre. The upgrade will finally remove a 64MB cap on the space occupied by installed apps and should also improve performance, particularly for apps and the Pixi. Wi-Fi reception will also be stronger.
The CEO hasn't said when the update will ship, but timing points to the firmware arriving at or before CES early next month. Many expect Palm to use the Las Vegas show to unveil new models that may have to use new firmware.
