Palm Gives Up Trying to Sync with iTunes

By Deane Barker on November 17, 2009

Palm gives up. Latest WebOS update for the Palm Pre lacks iTunes support : Palm has given up trying to sync with iTunes.  Too bad.

For the time being, it appears that Palm has finally given up on its efforts to maintain compatibility between the Pre and iTunes.  And truth be told, it’s about time.  The real losers in this little tiff between Apple and Palm were the Palm Pre users who found themselves stuck in the middle of the dispute.  One day a Palm Pre would sync up with iTunes and the next week it wouldn’t.  Talk about an extremely inconsistent and frustrating user experience for Pre owners.

I don’t lay the blame on Palm’s doorstep.  If anything, this is a dick move by Apple.
