Palm Pre webOS 1.1.0 Available, Fixes iTunes Sync

Remember when Apple updated iTunes to version 8.2.1, breaking syncing with the Palm Pre? Well, that feature is back, along with loads of other stuff.

Palm has just released webOS 1.1.0, and the changelog is extensive. In addition to " Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1)" you'll find other gems like:

A new NFL Mobile Live application.

Tweaks to the Calendar, Contacts, and Camera apps.

Support for new Exchange ActiveSync Policies (including Remote Wipe).

Emoticon support in text, multimedia, and IMs.

A new forward-swipe gesture.

...and quite a few other refinements. Will Apple and Palm enter into the same vicious cycle of break-it / fix-it that instant messaging applications and protocols did for years, or can we all just learn to get along? Apple, the ball's in your court.
