    I spoke to Palm at CES about video on the Pre Plus. I assume it also applies now to the Pre. The editing feature should work on many video formats, not just the default. I haven't tried it yet, but the Pre may work as a video editor on just about any video you put on the USB drive. They also said the only limitation would be available memory. Let's hear how this works for you.
    Please thank me if it works.
    Visor->650->Pre

    I get the menu with more details, but duration is not listed on mine.

    Now, that's great news!

    Just a small thing, it looks like they took out the Media Sync (or whatever it was called) option when connecting the USB port to a computer. Now there is only 'USB Drive' and 'Just Charge'.

    Had the latest Preware installed ... loaded 1.4 with no problems. Hit Preware and it says it updated my patches, but did not. Not even after a Luna Restart.

    I guess I'll have to uninstall and then re-install everything.

    I was pretty excited about the ringtone feature but I went back to system sounds. The issue for me is that Palm has provided two separate volumes for ringtone and system sounds whereas with the new "ringtone" alerts, the alert tone is just as loud as when the phone rings. Too loud for me. I had hoped that the alerts would be the same volume as the system sounds. Still, probably fine for most folks.

    I too vote for elimination of the limitation!

    It's a little change, but I love the startup card that appears when you open an application. My fingers are not very nimble and it's nice that you can swipe away the application quickly before it fully opens.

    I think it has to do with file size, not duration. As email attachment it probably does not resize the video quality. Where as stated earlier the MMS attachment of a video file did get resized to a lower resolution.

    You could do this before but you had to tap the center button to show the blank card then swipe away. It is easier now taking a step away.

    Yes, I very much want memo/audio recording too! Palm did a LOT for us in this update so hopefully it will be added to the next one.

    MEDIA SYNC IS STILL AVAILABLE! It's found under the device info, then preferences! I don't use it but for all who do!

    * This release includes a new Secure Full Erase option. A secure full erase takes considerably longer than a regular full erase.

    Email

    * You can customize calendar notification sounds in Preferences & Accounts. The options include Mute, System Sound, Ringtone, and Vibrate. The Ringtone option includes new notification sounds to give you more customization choices.
    * A new Sort application menu item allows you to sort the message list in any email folder. The sort options are By Date, By Sender, and By Subject. Tapping the currently selected sort option changes the sort from ascending to descending or descending to ascending. Tapping another sort option sorts by that option in ascending order.
    * When you receive a message with one or more attached files, the first file to be fully downloaded opens automatically.
    * You can tap a phone number in the subject line of an email message to dial it, or tap a URL in the subject line to open the web browser to that page.

    * If the message body contains an email address and you tap and hold the address, a menu appears displaying options to Email or Add To Contacts (if the email address is not already saved in a contact).
    * You can sign in to an email account with a domain of up to six letters (such as .museum or .travel).
    * For POP email accounts, a new preference lets you choose to delete a message on the phone when it is deleted on the server. The default is that messages deleted on the server are not deleted on the phone.

    * If you send an email that contains periods from an SMTP account, the periods display correctly in the recipient’s email application.
    * If you reply to an email message with a large number of recipients, the reply screen opens scrolled to the message body so you can begin typing the reply text right away.

    * Special characters display correctly in the subject line of a received message.

    * If a memo contains an email address and you tap and hold the address, a menu appears displaying options to Email or Add To Contacts (if the email address is not already saved in a contact).

    Messaging

    * You can dial a phone number directly from a conversation by tapping Text or the IM account name displayed in the upper-right corner and tapping the phone icon next to the number you want to dial. Phone numbers include the type of number: home, mobile, and so on.
    * You can attach a video to an outgoing multimedia message.
    * You can forward a text or multimedia message via email by tapping and holding the message and tapping Forward Via Email in the menu that appears. The Email application opens in compose view with the message text as the body of the new email message. If the message was a multimedia message, the multimedia message appears in the Subject field of the email, and any attachments from the multimedia message appear as attachments in the email.

The expanded display also includes call details such as call length and phone number type.
    * If you create a conference call from two outgoing calls, you can now end the conference call from a Bluetooth headset, if the headset model supports this feature.
    * If you access the list of countries from the International Dialing preference, you can search the list by entering the first few letters of a country name.
    * If you are on a call with a contact, tapping the contact photo on the active call screen no longer opens the contact entry.

    Photos

    * Photos you copy onto the phone now appear correctly rotated in Photos, regardless of their initial rotation.

    Screen & Lock

    * New blink notifications (a blinking light in the gesture area) alert you when email, text message, or other notifications arrive. You clear the blink notification by turning the screen on and off or unlocking the screen. The blink notification preference is on by default; you can turn it off in Screen & Lock > Blink Notifications.
    * Screen lock now supports any timeout interval assigned by a corporate Exchange system administrator.

    Sounds & Ringtones

    * This release adds new user-selectable notification sounds under Ringtone.

    Sprint TV

    * If you are watching Sprint TV through a wired headset and unplug the headset, audio playback continues through the phone’s speaker and video playback continues without pausing.

    * You can quickly unlock the screen by dragging up from the gesture area across the onscreen lock icon.
    * This release improves the speed of downloading applications and files.

    * You can attach a video to an outgoing multimedia message.
    * If you tap the option to share an uploaded video, you have the option to send the link via email, text message, or Facebook.

    Web

    * If a web page contains a phone number and you tap and hold the number, a menu appears displaying options to Call, Text, or Add To Contacts (if the number is not already saved in a contact).
    * If a web page contains an email address and you tap and hold the address, a menu appears displaying options to Email or Add To Contacts (if the email address is not already saved in a contact).
    * This release includes support for the Adobe Flash 10.1 Beta plugin. Note that the plugin is a standalone app that will be available in App Catalog.

    Wi-Fi

    * A new Sleep Settings application menu item allows you to change a setting so that if Wi-Fi is on and the phone screen turns off, the Wi-Fi feature turns off. By default, if Wi-Fi is on and the screen turns off, the Wi-Fi feature stays on.

    Security

    This release implements a security fix to the developer portal. It now uses HTTPS to protect all sensitive data. We'd like to thank Andrew King and Michael Siroskey for reporting this issue.

    Individuals interested in contacting Palm to report suspected security issues can find more information at palm.com/security .

    My first experiences with 1.4:

    1. Patches were gone. Had to update/remove/reinstall all patches. Fine now.
    2. Startup card with flashing icon is lame. Actually slows down app open time.
    3. Opened NFS and opened browser and video on web..no too many cards error? Tried to open Glyder 2 and got it. 2 games at once still too much? However, maybe partial fix on lesser memory intensive mulitasking?
    4. Video recording awesome but am I missing a light option like on Precorder?

    Overall seems okay for what I do.

    Wow, would I like this too! For quick voice memos to myself (yes, my memory is that bad, and I don't feel like typing out every little thought I want to save for later.) I'd love it either as a native Pre app or a 3rd party app (if the latter already exists somewhere, I haven't seen it.)
