As for the rumored future update, that's believed to be webOS 1.3.5 and expected to arrive in mid-December.  The news was revealed by a loose-lipped O2 Germany rep, apparently, who explained that one of 1.3.5's tweaks will be to fix an SMS bug that roughly halves the character limit after a special letter is entered.
