A couple of days after their latest release of WebOS 1.2 Palm released WebOS 1.2.1. Now the Palm Pre is again synchronizing with Apple’s iTunes 9.0.1. Since iTunes version 8.2.1 with every update Apple is trying to stop Palm from syncing their Pre with iTunes. As we’ve seen in the past, all those attempts by Apple don’t last long. According to Precentral.net the Palm Pre uses Apple’s USB idVendor string to fool iTunes into thinking the Palm Pre is an iPod.
The WebOS 1.2.1 update features:
- sync photo albums with iTunes
- reducing size of photos on the Pre
- bugfix for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 sync
The update is 38MBybte in size and will be transmitted automatically on the Pre – at least in the USA.
