The war between Palm and Apple is officially underway, after many warnings and news on this website with iTunes becoming the first battleground.
It appears that the first conflict has resulted in the Palm Pre mobile phone, which has yet to see an official UK release, being blocked from the latest version of iTunes. That is, the Pre will no longer sync with the iTunes software. Version 8.2.1 of iTunes is the problem version for Palm's groundbreaking handset. Hence, users who wish to interact with the iTunes utility will have to add music in a manual manner. Will Palm decide to patch the Apple 'hack'? We can only wait and see and speculate, according to the Prethinking website. If such a move does occur, and there is every chance that it will, then we can expect the battle to rage with the consumer stuck in the middle.
