Palm WebOS update restores Pre iTunes Sync
Palm has released webOS 1.1, bringing with it a number of new features and improvements for the company’s Pre smartphone. Most notable for iLounge readers, however, is the re-enabling of what Palm calls “media sync,” which allows Pre users to connect their devices to iTunes and sync their media as if it was an iPod. Cleverly beginning the sentence with “Oh, and one more thing,”—a reference to Steve Jobs’ surprise final announcements during past Keynotes—the company’s blog states that “you once again can have seamless access to your music, photos and videos from the current version of iTunes.” Apple disabled this feature with the release of iTunes 8.2.1, noting that the release “addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices.” The Pre previously achieved syncing with iTunes by masquerading as an iPod; it is unclear if the same approach is being used by the latest software.
