Christmas tree on Friday, but Sprint
did give us a happy start to the week by releasing webOS
1.3.5 today for
the Palm Pre

mention from CEO Jon Rubinstein during Palm's Q2FY2010 earnings call, we knew
the update was in the works and was scheduled to be released around CES next

little peek at what the update will provide:
