Palm webOS 1.3.5 Will NOT Restore iTunes Media Synching

itunes-preIn addition to four calling birds, today–the fourth day of Christmas–will bring the latest point release of Palm’s webOS operating system.

Judging from Palm’s (PALM) version notes, webOS 1.3.5 is a relatively minor update, featurewise. It promises to give the Pre and Pixi improved battery life “in marginal coverage areas” and addresses some media-related MMS issues.

One media-related issue the update does not address: iTunes compatibility. Sources tell me that 1.3.5 includes no update allowing media synching with iTunes. Seems Palm has abandoned its little mouse-and-cat game with Apple (AAPL)–for the time being, anyway.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
