webOS 1.3.2 Released for Pixi, Pre Standing By

note: webOS 1.3.2 is not Christmas-themed, that'd be an add-on

We're not sure what to make of this yet, but andidendel in our forums just let us know that webOS 1.3.2 is getting pushed out to the Pixi right now. A few of our members in this forum thread have installed to to much rejoicing. Where by "rejoicing" we mean "it's not clear what the update contains just yet." Our favorite guess comes from windzilla, who writes:

maybe it updates updating ;) so that you can download via 1xrtt

Speaking of things we're not clear about: whether and when the Pre will also receive the 1.3.2 update. We're firmly expecting webOS 1.3.5 in the coming weeks (and, by the by, now firmly expecting that it will do something about that pernicious app limit). For now, we're furiously tapping the refresh button on the Update app on the Pre and checking Palm's webOS changelog for the Pixi.

Update: Early speculation is that the update helps reduce lag on the Pixi, especially with multiple apps open. If that turns out to be the case, Pre owners shouldn't fret too much, as it may just be optimizations for the Pixi's processor.

Thanks andidendel!
