Palm webOS 1.2 now available for download

webos12-releaseFor those who has the Palm Pre you’ll be thrilled to know that the new webOS version 1.2 is available for download. You can get it here and this is the one that will work for the Bell Palm Pre.

The file is heft at 79MB and we are downloading it and will see what works over here and what does not. Palm says the new updates includes: “For starters, we’ve beefed up Palm Synergy to include LinkedIn contact syncing. Info from LinkedIn profiles (like job titles) will now appear in your Palm Pre contacts. The new update also facilitates links across more different flavors of IM contacts. Business-oriented webOS 1.2 customers will also appreciate support for heterogeneous EAS policies (for workplaces with a mix of end-users in which some accounts support EAS policies and others don’t).

And we heard your feedback on a number of topics loud and clear:
– We know you love email – and you’ll really love the ability to filter the emails in the current folder just by typing a search term.
– You asked for the ability to download files in the browser – and now you’ve got it.
– Music fans will be glad to hear that the Amazon MP3 Store can now download songs from either WiFi or WAN.
– You can now tap a phone number in a calendar note to dial it (so you can get to the joy of music-on-hold for your conference calls even faster!).
– Pause a podcast and, by default, you’ll pick up where you left off when you unpause.
– Web pages and emails are now cut-and-paste-able.
