PreCentral reports that Palm's webOS 1.2 has just been released, offering a number of improvements to the Palm Pre's operating system. Multiple posters in the PreCentral forums have noted, however, that the update does not re-enable media syncing via iTunes.
Last week, rumors had suggested that the update would in fact re-enable iTunes syncing in the latest move in Apple and Palm's cat-and-mouse game over the issue. A letter from the USB Implementers Forum questioning Palm's apparent misuse of Apple's USB Vendor ID in order to achieve syncing, however, may have caused them to at least temporarily pull the plug on re-enabling the feature.
