webOS 1.4.1 Rolling Out In Europe, US Coming Soon?

Palm has released webOS 1.4.1 in a variety of countries, but the update hasn’t hit the US just yet. Palm has yet to confirm a release date, but one would assume we’ll see it here sometime soon. Release notes for the O2 Palm Pre have been released, so you can expect more of the same when the update hit us in the US. For those in Europe, you can now open up your wallet and spend your hard earned money on webOS apps.

Update: Sprint customers are now webOS update 1.4.1.1 (thanks Adam!). No word yet from Verizon customers.
