You know that Europe-only Palm Pre update we mentioned just a little while ago? Turns out there’s an undocumented, hidden feature tucked inside. That’s our favorite kind of feature!

In addition to all the bug fixes and Prepaid SIM card tweaks, it looks like Palm also slipped in the Bluetooth PAN profile required to enable Pre owners to connect to their laptops to the Internet via their handsets. Palm makes no mention of it in their English support notes, but PreCentral users have more than properly verified it at this point.
