webOS 1.4.5 for Verizon, AT&T Pre Plus now out

Just over a month after the release of webOS 1.4.5 for Sprint's Palm Pre, Pixi and Pixi Plus and Pre Plus handsets, the Verizon and AT&T versions are getting their own software updates. Like in the other handsets, the newest software brings with better support for 3D gaming and other PDK features in the Plus variants, longer battery life and an improved Mobile Hotspot functionality with Windows Vista 64-bit.

The Verizon release notes from Palm do not clearly identify the improvements to battery life and Mobile Hotspot features, however. A number of other, smaller fixes are likewise expected in the software update. This should include a solution for downloading podcasts and entering text on the web. It's possible to send videos over MMS with last-minute trimming.

Those with homebrew apps preloaded onto their handsets are urged to remove them before updating their handsets, but the update should otherwise be ready to use for everyone affected.
