Update Fixes Palm Pre iTunes 8.2.1 Sync

Palm has just released webOS update 1.1.0. The update feaures the new NFL Mobile Live app and a host of improvements. Most notable is the reintroduction of syncing between the Palm Pre and iTunes 8.2.1. Apple had pushed the iTunes 8.2.1 update specifically to deal with devices that “incorrectly display themselves as an Apple device”, which essentially broke syncing between iTunes and the Pre. As per the release notes, that’s all changed again with the webOS 1.1.0.

Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1).

I think it’s safe to say that the cat and mouse game between Palm and Apple is on. We’d like to hope that Apple will simply let this pass, since it’s in the interest of their customers, but don’t be surprised if iTunes 8.2.2 is released in the next few weeks.
