Palm restores Pré iTunes synchronisation

Also adds long list of tweaks and new features

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Pré owners can once more synchronise the phone with iTunes, following the release of a software update for the Palm smartphone.

When Apple recently released iTunes version 8.2.1, the company said that the update “disables devices falsely pretending to be iPods, including the Palm Pré”.

But Palm’s since gone one-up on Apple with the launch of webOS 1.1.0, which the firm said “Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1)”.

Whether Apple will play cat and mouse with Palm and pull the plug on Pré-iTunes synchronisation with yet another update in the coming weeks and months remains to be seen.

The latest Pré update also contains several other notable changes. For example, friends added and deleted in Facebook will now be added or deleted in the Facebook account of the phone’s Contacts menu.

The Pré’s Photos application also now opens more quickly when launched from the camera, Palm claimed.

Palm’s dedicated Pré webpage contains everything you need to know about webOS 1.1.0’s new features. ®
