    webOS 1.1.0

    Version information

    • Version: webOS 1.1.0
    • Release date: 23 July 2009
    • Configuration: Sprint 1.7
    New applications

    NFL Mobile Live from Sprint

    • Watch or listen to live NFL games right on your phone.
    Feature changes to existing applications


    • For Calendar accounts you create on your phone, the default reminder intervals are 15 minutes for timed events and one day for all-day events. A few notes:
      • This change applies only if software version 1.1 was on your phone when you bought it, or if you did a partial or full erase on your phone and signed in to your Palm profile again after updating to version 1.1. If you simply update your phone to software version 1.1, the default reminder intervals in Calendar do not change.
      • This change applies only to Calendar events you create on your phone, not to events that are synchronized to your phone from an online account.

    • The Photos application opens more quickly when launched from the camera.

    • Enhanced support for time zones in Clock.
    • When you set an alarm in Clock, an alarm icon appears in the notification area at the bottom of the screen. Tap the icon to display alarm details. Alarm details include the following:
      • If the alarm is set for the current day, the alarm time appears.
      • If the alarm is set for tomorrow, the alarm time and "Tomorrow" appear.
      • If the alarm is set for any day other than today or tomorrow, the day of the alarm appears.

    • Friends added and deleted in Facebook on the web are now correctly added and deleted in the Facebook account in Contacts on the phone.
    • As soon as you create or makes changes to a Google contact on the phone, the phone begins a sync to reflect those changes in Google on the web.

    • When you set up an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email account, you can enter the mail server name as an IP address.
    • Support for self-signed certificates with multiple common names has been added.
    • When you reply to an email in HTML format using an EAS account, the formatting of the sender's original message is now retained in the reply.
    • Palm's EAS implementation now supports several Exchange ActiveSync Policies, including the following:
      • PIN/Password Required. IT administrators can ensure a password is assigned to the phone. Administrators can also specify the minimum length of the password.
      • Inactivity timeout. IT administrators can ensure that an inactive phone goes into a locked state after a certain time period. You cannot set a higher timeout interval for your phone, but you can set a shorter interval.
      • Remote Wipe. IT Administrators can remotely erase all data on a phone from their Exchange console. IT administrators can also have the device wipe itself if an incorrect password is entered more than a specified number of times.

    • You can enter emoticons in new text, multimedia, and instant messages. Emoticons also display in incoming messages.
    • If you set the phone to use a 24-hour time format, the message times shown in a conversation appear in 24-hour time.
    • If you go into an IM account's preferences, all the options are available even if you are signed in to the account. You can tap Remove Account to delete the account, enter a new password to update the password, or tap Sign In to sign in with your updated password. Previously, you needed to sign out of the account before you could use these preferences.
    • When you delete an IM account, a message now appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the account.

    • When multiple missed call notifications are displayed on the dashboard, the time of the most recent missed call is shown.
    • When you slide the ringer switch off, a bell icon with a slash is displayed. Previously, the icon was a speaker with a slash.
    • In Phone Preferences, the Show Contact Matches preference is now turned on by default. When typing on the keyboard in the phone app, the phone automatically displays both the numbers being entered and any contact matches for the characters entered.

    • Improved functionality of person reminders. A person reminder is a notification that you create in a contact entry. The notification appears when you have a call or exchange an email, text, multimedia, or IM message with a contact.
    • Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1).
    • When you enter a search term in Card view or the Launcher to perform a universal search, if you select the Wikipedia web search option, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.

    • You can now use symbols from the symbols table (Sym [​IMG] + key) when you enter text into a web page dialog box.
    • If you have a page open at a certain zoom level, leave the page, and use the onscreen Back [​IMG] button or the back gesture to return to the page, the zoom level is restored right away.
    • A new gesture is now available that works the same as the onscreen Forward [​IMG] button. To move forward through open web pages, make a short swipe left to right in the gesture area.
    • When using the Wikipedia drop-down search feature in the address bar, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.
    • When you tap a link, the link appears highlighted to indicate it has been activated, even if it takes a moment for the linked page to open.

    • After you enter search text, you can tap the Search [​IMG] icon to perform a search. You still have the option of pressing Enter [​IMG] to perform the search.

    Engadget is also reporting that this update "fixes" the syncing issue with the recent Itunes software. Wow, how will Apple respond. Look how Palm was RIGHT on point with that!!!

    So that no one else gets their hopes up, it's an 87MB download and you need WiFi or EVDO to get it.

    I'm considering driving 45mins to the nearest paid wifi hotspot (traveling right now) to download it. I have nothing better to do :dft012:wink

    So strange that people are reporting they need a highspeed download connection/wifi to get the update. I am updating right from Sprint's EVDO.

    I'm pretty happy with what's included with this update especially the web updates. Currently my only access to the interwebs is through my phone, so having the save of zoom level, symbol usage, and swipe forward are things I've noticied were lacking and wasn't so pleased about. Way to go Palm! :cool:

    Also awesome on the iTunes fix!

    I've never used th contacts person notification, so not really sure how that works? Juding from the statement above it makes me think its one way to personalize if certain contacts msg you? Is that right? Is it like setting a specific sound for that one person? Anyone use this feature before?

    Things I'd like to see in the next update: battery fix, youtube (being able to sign into your account from the app,) and video.... But totally stoked on the current update too! Palm ftw! :cool:

    You don't need wifi. However I can literally see the battery icon draining as this is downloading. haha

    I guess some don't have either. I would not have known that

    I think that it refers to the reminder function.

    Lol, Palm came back with a slap and got around Apples attempt to get rid of syncing. I can see it now its on like Donkey Kong between these two companies.

    Yeah, I just used Sprint's EVDO and it uploaded super quick (I'm in San Francisco). What took so long was the re-boot. And don't forget: Do not remove the battery! LOL Okay, off to play on my phone to check out the new changes!:dft010:smile:dft010:smile:dft010:smile
