    Thanks for clarifying that. I meant to say no mention of a 1.08 update but there is a new user guide.

    I don't think the update will do anything but update the facebook and google maps apps from what I keep hearing.

    If the update just moves those 2 apps to rom, then its a big update IMO. We need all the space we can get lol.

    Arguably, we need to update more than the 128MB olive/green users

    I agree sfhub.

    They need to update ptunes and docstogo in rom too! Pretty lame having duplicates.

    I would like a new UI of the Phone app! And less battery drain when using the data connection. A whole day of Pushing kills my battery (even with disconnect every 5 minutes when not active)

    Anything is possible, but personally I feel it is very doubtful you will see more involved enhancements like that. Fine tuning stuff and updating apps is what I would expect.

    If Dmitry Ginberg has his way, all the Palm updates in the world might not matter. Hmmm, maybe I could breathe life into my i500 again.
    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    It's entirely possibly that 1.08 is just Palm's way of denoting the "new" 128mb RAM/rubberized paint Centros from the old versions. The original Centros might remain at 1.07.

    That said, if 1.08 is indeed a downloadable update for all Centros, my software change predictions are as follows:

    -Newer Google Maps (2.0.2.0) in ROM
    -Facebook app in ROM
    -MAYBE the newest PTunes (4.0.7) and DTG (10.02) in ROM
    -POSSIBLE BUT UNLIKELY, the Sprint Voice Command thingie is removed and replaced with Palm's Voice Dial app (like the GSM versions).
    -POSSIBLE BUT UNLIKELY, the latest VersaMail (4.0.1 build 77) in ROM

    Maybe some additional very minor changes---updating "about" screens to 2008 instead of 2007 etc.

    Corrections:
    -Versamail is already at 4.0.1 Build 86 on Sprint 1.0.7 rom
    -There is no Sprint Voice Dial App. The current voice dial on Sprint devices is Nuance Voice Dial (monthly Charge). It uses server side Speech recognition. The alternative on GSM devices is a Treo Voice Dialing, which was made by Voice Signal and is now also owned by Nuance. This was a 1-time charge for older Treos, but is included on GSM devices and Verizon devices. Treo Voice Dialing resides completely on the phone without using a server.

    Voice Dialing also doesn't work through BT headsets due to a limitation in the HW/OS. It does work through speakerphone though.

    Mogulman;

    Thanks for the heads up. I use a VZW 755p and don't know anyone with a Sprint Centro personally, so I wasn't aware of those details.

    It's always nice to see updates from official release. I'm currently using an unlocked Centro purchased from Singapore. Is there a 1.08 for unlocked Centro? I didn't manage to find it from Palm's website.

    Thank you :-)

    i played with a new centro at the store the other day and the only things i found were an updated google maps and facebook app in rom. other than that blazer, phone, email, bluetooth, and messaging were the exact same version as 1.07. the clerks started getting uppity so i didn't get to check much else
