Verizon Pixi Plus Users Get webOS 1.4.5

Precentral is reporting that Verizon has released webOS 1.4.5 for Pixi Plus users. Pre Plus users are out of luck, and the update is nowhere to be seen for AT&T users either.

The release notes are the same as for the Sprint release. No new surprises, and remember that not all PDK apps have been ported to the Pixi platform (including the favorite of many, Angry Birds).
