The highly anticipated update for the Palm Pre & Pixi is finally here. At around 1:30AM EST the update was posted for download.  While it is not yet available for the Verizon WebOS devices, those with Sprint are happily and slowly downloading the update as I type this.  At this time expect slow download speeds as those devoted to their WebOS device have slammed the servers to try out their new features.
