Verizon Wireless rolls out webOS to the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:36PM EST

Starting today, Verizon Wireless is rolling out the webOS update to Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus owners. The update is a mere 11 mb in size and contains minor bug fixes including one that addresses that annoying “sticky key” problem in which a single key press produces double letters. Pinch to zoom is also expanded into Docs and PDF, WiFi to CDMA hand-off is more consistent, and battery life while using Bluetooth has also been improved. The update is available over the air and should arrive to Pre Plus and Pixi Plus handset within the next 48 hours. Hit the jump for the full changelog.
