Following yesterday’s bad news, Palm today announced that their Pre devices would receive a WebOS 1.4 update today, which includes Adobe’s Flash 10 player. The change log notes that “full Flash 10 support will require an Adobe plug-in which will be available shortly from the Palm App catalog”. It will be interesting to see how well Flash works on the Pre and how well recieved it is by its owners.
If we have any Pre owners reading, we’d like to know how/if Hulu performs on the Pre.
Steve jobs reportedly told Wall St. Journal execs that the inclusion of Flash on the iPad would take the battery from 10 hours to 1.5 so the battery toll on the Pre will be closely watched.
