PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The sky might be dark over Sunnyvale, but that obviously doesn't stop Palm from updating its webOS. The highly anticipated version 1.4 of the young mobile platform has been released over the weekend, and it includes an impressive array of new features, improvements, and bug fixes.

That's the old version. Flash 10.1 on mobile devices is supposedly a whole lot better.

I'll wait for proper tests, though.

I don't know how flash works on other mobile OS, but on Symbian it does a good job (on Nokia 5800 XM).

I could not find any bugs, all mobile web sites work ok.
However I found the following problems on sites not optimise for mobile flash:
- the use of mouse in a way thet touch screen cannot emulate (using the position of the mouse, not the click)
This problem I also found in some JS sites.
- not showing the flash because the version is not ok. Even though the latest flash plugin on symbian could display most flash sites, you would get a message that your version of flash is not good.

Mobile flash sites, like youtube mobile beta work ok, fullscreen display is good.

Flash 9 ran like treacle on the N800. It was horrible. It doesn't sound like it has improved by a great degree from the recent feedback.
