Apple takes precautions, warns Palm about the Pre’s iTunes Syncing

Apple iTunes and Palm Pre Sync

We can see how the two companies have added colors on the smartphone industry, with the ways they thought of getting an edge to each other. Palm introduces Pre then Apple launches iPhone 3G S, since January they have gone on thunderous battle. Now Apple throwing another punch on Palm telling they could kill the compatibility of Pre with iTunes.

Daring Fireball was the first to decipher what was written on support article entitled “iTunes: About unsupported third-party digital media players.” Here’s what Apple writes:

Apple designs the hardware and software to provide seamless integration of the iPhone and iPod with iTunes, the iTunes Store, and tens of thousands of apps on the App Store. Apple is aware that some third-parties claim that their digital media players are able to sync with Apple software. However, Apple does not provide support for, or test for compatibility with, non-Apple digital media players and, because software changes over time, newer versions of Apple’s iTunes software may no longer provide syncing functionality with non-Apple digital media players.

I speculate that the Pre is really aimed or designed to sync with iTunes making Pre flexible of an iPod like functionality. So we could see the peoples behind Pre’s design that comes from their mere competitor Apple.

We still don’t know what Apple’s definite action on their message, but for now we can eat its very strong message for Pre.
