Users of the smart phone are reportedly able to connect to iTunes again days after Apple disabled the feature.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News — The battle between Apple Inc. and Palm Inc. over use of an iTunes feature on the Palm Pre smart phone continues. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the smart phone’s ability to connect to Apples iTunes was disabled last week with Apple making the claim that the phones were “falsely pretending to be iPods.” However, according to a Palm blog post, it is now reconnected.
As noted in the report, the Pre phone was released in June and is the first non Apple phone that has the ability to connect directly to iTunes. Palm spokeswoman Lynn Fox is stated in the report to allege that Apple was using its USB vendor code improperly. However, Apple spokesman, Tom Neumayr disagrees and is quoted by the AP as stating, “As we’ve said before, newer versions of Apples iTunes software may no longer provide synching functionality with unsupported digital media players.”
