Palm webOS 1.1 to bring huge Exchange boost, apps?

Palm logoA tip regarding Palm's future webOS 1.1 update hints that the smartphone OS is about to receive a significant upgrade, particularly for business users. The new firmware described by PreCentral should give the Pre and future Palm phones much requested Microsoft Exchange features such as support for company-initiated remote wipes, requiring a PIN to unlock the phone, forcing a certain complexity of PIN, and automatically locking the phone when it goes unused for a certain amount of time. All of the additions are considered essential for the phone, which has seen unusually high interest from corporate buyers and to compete against the iPhone in the workplace.

More apps are also reportedly due to come with 1.1, though it's not known at this point whether it involves more built-in apps or more App Catalog items for sale. What these apps will be is just as unknown. The update is poised to go live sometime within the next 30 days and will be the first significant update to the Pre since it was launched in June. Until now, there have been only a few minor bug fix updates.
