webOS 1.2 Leaked

It appears that Palm inadvertently made webOS 1.2 available via the webOS doctor. A Pre|Central reader was attempting to bring his Palm Pre back to factory standard and to his surprise it installed webOS 1.2. While it’s not ready for everyone yet, we’ll take this information as it might be coming very soon.

One of the features includes the ability to enter account information in App Catalog, thus paving the way for paid apps. The deadline for submitting paid apps is September 15th. Are the stars aligning for the availability of paid apps sometime this month?

There are also reports of a “select all” option which might be an indicator that copy & paste will be improved upon.
