Well Pre fans, at least you knew it was coming. Word is trickling out that Apple has made good on its ‘threat’ and with the release of iTunes 8.2.1, so goes the Pre’s ability to sync. Palm said in its statement that users should consider holding off on upgrading and if you’re a big fan of out-of-the-box iTunes syncing that’s probably a good idea. The question now is whether or not Palm will end up in a cat and mouse game with Apple (finding a way around Apple’s fix, waiting for the new exploit to be plugged, etc) that plenty of devs are familiar with. Don’t take it too hard though, Palm fans, as there are definitely other options when it comes to getting your iTunes library synced up with your Pre.
