    I'm guessing 1.4.5 will come out when Sprint okays it and then 1.4.5.1 may be the flash update. I feel like flash isn't already at the Sprint level.

    I definitely agree there. Because most buyers are not like me (a lot of us), which is loyal to palm. They just see the Evo or Droid X and think because it has a big screen its better. But we'll get our updates & hardware info soon I hope. This merger just slowed things down I guess from an announcement level.

    As someone else stated somewhere, having the new palm devices announced after iphone 4 and droid x, then palm will hopefully have more spotlight. They've typically announced before iphone, then lost the spotlight.

The only feature that we know for sure is coming with 1.4.5 is the ability for the Pixi to run PDK games. Updates are great and I'm all for them, and there will undoubtedly be some bug fixes that come along for the ride, but I don't think 1.4.5 is really going to change Palm's competitive position right now. I think they need new hardware for that.
    I thought 1.4.5 adds support for other PDK apps (besides games, probably mostly iPhone ports) so they are sandboxed in memory so they don't crash the whole phone.

    If it's truly called 1.5, what are they adding?

    Personally, I don't care about much but finally seeing webOS use the GPU. Oh, and a bunch of configurability to get back to stuff we took for granted with the Centro (like separate volume settings for ringer and speaker...)
    Sighhhhhhhh-

    1.4 added the ability to use Flash when Adobe puts it out there (which is being done now). All we're waiting for is the app that triggers it.

    Yes, I think you're right about that. And that could have some impact on Palm's competitive position at some point. But it's not going to be huge any time soon.

    Sighhhhh- I understand that. However, the apps in the catalog are updated with each webOS update, so it is very likely that the flash player will show up after the next update, rather than with 1.4.1.1 and then with an update after 1.5. At least that was my assumption... and the basis of an EXAMPLE of what might be in 1.5

    So, now you can actually answer the question? What functionality do we expect to see in 1.5? Not what "ability" will be in there, what actual functionality - such as the video recorder/editor added in 1.4?

    Is there a list of new functionality provided to appdevelopers?

    1.3.5 was a HUGE update for most all of us in native apps and pdk apps.

    So, what's holding you back? Seriously, you weren't promised anything, so nothing is being shorted. The updates will come when they come. If folks "go elsewhere", they go elsewhere. That's just the way things are.

    Palm has done more updates on this phone in a shorter amount of time than anyone else. There are legitmate complaints about the phone. Lack of updates is not one of them.

    Believe me, it's well known how frustrated i am about webOS' lack of functionality, and i understand what you're asking.
    While i would love to know the answer, i don't.

    Herb, Palm has had more updates because so much was (and is) missing. I'm sure you realize that, don't you?

    i loled at the OP. Palm has released the update to the carriers, after that it does not have much to due with palm, it is all in the hands of the carriers as they test it and what not.

    Don't forget the app store is expecting a nice little enhancement update as well.

    Just the fact it's a darker color than that ugly bright blue-ish color now tickles my fancy.
