webOS 1.2 Now Available
"By the end of next week" might have been a little pessimistic: webOS 1.2 is now available for over-the-air update. A friendly reminder: remove all patches and tweaks from your Pre before updating, because no one likes having to take their phone to the Doctor. And yes, developers, the Mojo SDK webOS emulator has also been updated.
Reportedly, the update does not fix the broken iTunes 9 sync, so it seems Palm are going to play nice with the USB-IF and let Apple dictate how their own hardware should work after all. In happier news, it also brings the ability to download files within the browser, email searching within the Email app, Amazon mp3 downloads over EVDO and proper cut-and-paste within web pages and emails.
The list of major changes and updates found in webOS 1.2 can be found at Palm Support.
