Palm releases webOS 1.1 for the Pre

by Volker Weber

From the Palm website:

Today we released Palm webOS 1.1, which brings several additions to our support for Exchange ActiveSync (EAS),

Gregg Ginsberg comments (details here), that his Pre now works with Traveler 8.5.1 on Lotus Greenhouse.

There is other cool stuff in webOS 1.1, for instance:

the ability to set “person reminders” in the contacts app (next time you get a message or phone call from that person, a message pops up showing you a reminder to ask them about their vacation in Maui -- cool, huh?)

And finally, the Pre now syncs with iTunes 8.2.1 - so it's up to Apple to kick Pre users in the nuts again with 8.2.2.


>> so it's up to Apple to kick Pre users in the nuts again with 8.2.2

This so reminds me of the wars once fought between multi-protocol IM clients like Trillian and the big IM networks like AIM and MSN. The developers of alternative clients reverse engineer the IM protocol, the server developers make subtle changes to break the alternative clients, which their developers reengineer again...

Apple, this strategy is so 90's!
