iTunes 9 Breaks iTunes Sync. Again. Get Going, Palm

Sister Site The iPhone Blog has everything you need to know about today's Apple Announcements - from the disappointing non-camera update to the iPod Touch to iPhone OS 3.1 getting released (Palm has some more catching up to do). Also new today: iTunes 9.

The big question on everybody's mind: does it break Palm Pre Sync? Pre users in this thread are downloading now and the verdict is yes, Palm Pre Sync appears to be busted.

We fully explained how Palm re-enabled iTunes sync the last time:

So while previously the Pre identified itself as a "mass storage device" called an iPod, now it's identifying itself as a "mass storage device manufactured by Apple" called an iPod.

It's an open question whether or not Palm will be able to re-enable sync, but that webOS 1.2 "Delay" won't seem like a bad thing if it means Palm will be able to slip a fix in.

Meanwhile, you can choose to not upgrade iTunes or, like most of us here at PreCentral, switch to DoubleTwist, Salling Media Sync, or the Missing Sync.
