Wir berichteten bereits mehrfach über den Kampf zwischen Apple und Palm. Seit der Einführung des Palm Pres mit webOS ist es möglich, das Gerät mit dem Musikprogramm iTunes zu synchronisieren. iTunes erkennt den Palm Pre als iPod und synchronisiert somit wesentlich komfortabler. Apple reagierte und brachte ein Update von iTunes heraus. Als ein Update von Palm den Sync wieder ermöglichte, gab es auch von Seiten Apples neue Updates. Dieser “Kampf” geht nun schon einige Zeit. Bis vor kurzem ging Apple als Gewinner aus diesem Kampf hervor, hatte Palm doch Ärger mit dem USB-Regulierungsforum, da sie sich mit der angekündigten Verwendung von Apple-Vendor-IDs sehr weit aus dem Fenster herausgelehnt und gegen geltende Richtlinien verstoßen haben.

In dem neuen webOS-Update auf Version 1.2.1 wird die Sychronisation jedoch wieder ermöglicht. Was für mögliche Folgen das für Palm haben wird, ist derzeit noch nicht abzusehen. Wir werden die Sache verfolgen und weiter berichten …

    & Accounts
    from the application menu in App Catalog.

Bluetooth

  • If you are on the phone, get in a car with a previously
    paired car kit, and turn on the car, a notification appears asking
    whether you want to continue talking directly into the phone, or
    transfer the call to the car kit. Previously, the call was automatically transferred
    to the car kit.
  • The types of car kits to which contacts can be transferred
    has been increased. You can transfer contacts to Toyota and Lexus
    car kits.
  • You can make a Bluetooth connection to a computer even if
    the computer’s Bluetooth device name field is blank.

Calendar

  • On the event details screen, the Map Location application
    menu item is now called Event Location and has two
    submenu options: Show On Map, which displays the location
    in Google Maps, and Get Directions, which provides
    directions from the current location in Google Maps.
  • The options for changing a calendar’s display color and choosing
    whether to show or hide a calendar in All Calendars view are now
    accessed by opening the application menu > Preferences
    & Accounts
    > Calendar View Options,
    or by tapping the Calendar View Options list
    item in the list where you switch between All Calendars and an individual
    calendar.
  • If you tap Snooze on a calendar event
    notification, the notification no longer reappears after the event
    end time.

    number to dial it.

    tap an event to delete the event. Options displayed include deleting
    just this event or deleting the whole series for recurring events.
  • Calendar now recognizes the 7th day of a given month as the
    first Monday/Tuesday/etc. of that month, not the second. If you
    choose a repeat option for an event on the 7th, the list correctly
    shows the option Monthly on 1st [day]. Previously,
    the repeat list for an event on the 7th of the month showed the
    option Monthly on 2nd [day].
  • Untimed events included in calendar data migration from your
    desktop now appear on the correct date in Calendar.
  • If you create an all-day event and then switch the phone’s
    time zone, the event continues to display correctly.

    correctly.

    the organizer. If the organizer of an event requests not to receive
    responses, responses are not sent to the organizer.

    volume, not the system sounds volume.

    is available on the application menu, with options to send the contact
    to a car kit or send it as a vCard attachment to an email or multimedia
    message.
  • On a contact details screen, a Copy All option
    is now available on the Edit submenu in the application menu. Selecting
    this option copies the entire contents of the contact entry as plain
    text.
  • LinkedIn is now available as an online account in Contacts.
    As with Facebook, a LinkedIn account set up on the phone enables
    you to download contacts from that account. LinkedIn contacts cannot
    be created or edited in Contacts.
  • If a contact contains an instant messaging (IM) address, the
    contact is linked to the IM account buddy entry.

Email

  • You can search for messages in any email folder simply
    by opening the folder and typing. Search returns any matches found
    in the subject, From, To, or CC field.
  • If a message contains an inline image, you can act on the
    image by pressing and holding the orange key/Option and
    tapping the image. For all images, an option appears to share the
    image as an attachment to an email message. If the image is in JPG,
    BMP, or PNG format, a second option appears to copy the image to
    the Photos app.
  • Support for paragraph text selection, copy, and paste is now
    available in Email. A yellow highlight appears to indicate paragraph
    selection.

    policies on all these accounts; previously this was restricted to
    one account. Additionally, IT administrators no longer have to deselect
    “allow non-provisionable devices” on the Exchange server in order
    for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync policies to work on the phone.
  • If you change synchronization of email in a POP account to Manual,

    correctly sent.
  • Forwarded messages now correctly display the original message
    text with the formatting maintained.
  • When you save an attached file—for example, a Word file attachment
    saved to Doc View—the file appears with the correct name in the
    application.
  • An error message appears if you cannot send a message from
    an Exchange account because the account mailbox is full.
  • The Email application always enforces EAS security policies—such
    as entering a password—when you try to access your Exchange account
    in Email.

Media Sync

  • Media sync now allows for synchronizing photos without
    requiring the full-resolution originals. This provides faster display
    of high-quality full screen images and enables you to store more
    photos on the phone.

Memos

  • Tapping text in a memo moves the cursor to the point
    that was tapped.
  • When you send a memo using the Email Memo menu
    option, the memo formatting is maintained in the copied memo.

Messaging

  • When you are in a conversation with an IM buddy, the
    buddy’s online status and custom message are displayed on the conversation
    screen.
  • In Conversations view, a Copy All option is now
    available on the Edit submenu in the application menu. Selecting
    this option copies the entire contents of the conversation as plain
    text.
  • When addressing a message, searching for a linked contact
    whose contact entry does not contain a complete last name (such
    as John S.) now returns the contact match correctly.
  • If a contact contains an instant messaging (IM) address, the
    contact is linked to the IM account buddy entry.
  • You can receive vCard contact entries as part of a multimedia
    message.

Music

  • If playback of an audio file is paused or interrupted,
    when you resume playback, playback resumes at the point where it
    was paused. This applies to audio files for which the Genre field
    is defined as podcast, speech, spoken word, netcast, or audiobook
    only.
  • You can use music playback controls on the dashboard even
    if the screen is locked.
  • If the ringer switch is turned off, music playback is not
    interrupted by an incoming call.

Phone

    the Phone application by opening the application menu > Preferences > Data
    Usage
    > tap on/off.
  • Default ringtone volume has been increased.
  • Adjusting the volume of a call now works even if the screen
    is off. Reducing the volume level to zero sets the call volume to
    zero.

    and type.

Photos

  • The Photos app can now display photos in JPG, BMP,
    and PNG format.

Sprint Navigation

  • Sprint Navigation now pulls Google contacts from the
    phone, as well as Exchange and Palm profile contacts.

System

  • You can open either the application or connection menu
    by dragging down from the upper corner of the phone onto the screen,
    as well as tapping the upper corner of the screen.
  • When you press and hold the orange key/Option and
    drag onscreen, the cursor now moves one word at a time instead of
    one character at time in Email, Memos, and other apps. The cursor
    still moves one character at a time in the Web address bar and Messaging
    body text entry field.
  • Notifications, including incoming phone calls, now show above
    the onscreen lock icon, so they can be seen when the keyboard is
    locked.
  • Notification sounds play softly when you are on a call, regardless
    of the system sounds setting.
  • If you copy text from an application and open the Launcher,
    you can paste the text to start a universal search.
  • Universal search contact matches include an Add Reminder option
    that allows you to add a reminder to the contact.
  • In universal search, pressing the orange key/Option +
    a letter key now searches on the letter key’s alternate character
    (for example, 5 for F), not on the letter key.
  • In universal search, you can enter keywords to search for
    applications. For example, entering “addresses” returns Contacts,
    “SMS” returns Messaging, and “pictures” returns Photos.

Tasks

  • Tasks that are assigned a category now retain the category
    when they synchronize between the phone and your desktop. Other
    information including start date, status, reminder setting, and
    privacy setting is also retained.
  • A new Hide Completed menu option is
    available. If you select this option and mark a task as completed,
    the task disappears from the current view.
  • A menu in the upper-right corner of the screen showing all
    tasks enables you to sort tasks by due date or priority. You can
    also manually reorder the tasks.

Web

  • The browser now supports downloading files from a web
    page. To download a file, tap the file name.
  • The browser now supports paragraph selection, cut, copy, and
    paste on web page text. A yellow highlight appears to indicate paragraph
    selection.
  • You can press and hold the orange key/Option and
    tap a link or image. Options displayed include opening the item
    in a new card, sharing the link or image via email, or copying the
    URL. For images in JPG, BMP, or PNG format, an additional option
    to copy the image to the Photo app is displayed.
  • If you tap on a text field, the page zooms to a level at which
    it is easy to read the text being entered.
  • If you copy text in the address bar or in the body text of
    a web page, a notification appears stating that the text was copied.
  • You can accept self-signed certificates through the browser.
