WebOS fix today improves battery, more

Sprint through release notes appears to have inadvertently confirmed that a promised webOS update will launch today. The webOS 1.3.5 update is scheduled for the 28th and will give the Pre improved battery life, particularly when it's on the edge of coverage. It additionally launches either Google Maps or Sprint Navigation when tapping an address in contacts, fixes playing media sent through MMS, and shrinks the size of updates to where they can be downloaded over a 2G data connection if needed.

The update doesn't make mention of some of the updates promised by Palm chief Jon Rubinstein, such as removing the app limit and improving both system performance and Wi-Fi. It's not clear if these are simply unmentioned in the current release notes or if Palm plans a second, more substantial update in the near future.
