WebOS 1.2.1 is out! Fixes iTunes Sync and EAS issues.

Palm has decided to stick it to Apple once more as they restore the Pre's syncing capabilities with iTunes. The Pre's Media sync functionality has been restored and works with iTunes 9.  Palm also notes they fixed some of the various issues users were having with Exchange (EAS) on the Pre. Here are the release notes for WebOS 1.2.1

Version information

  • Version: webOS 1.2.1
  • Release date: 2 October 2009

New applications

NONE

Feature changes to existing applications

Email

  • Resolved an issue where after installing the 1.2.0 webOS update some customers running Exchange 2007 could no longer synchronize with their Exchange account for Email, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks.

System

  • Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (9.0.1).

Thats great and all but where are the damn paid apps?? They said it would be in Sept, then a "tipster" said they'd be sure to land yesterady, and now nothing, getting sick of all the delays! How hard can it be to throw some paid apps in the catalog?
