Palm Pre WebOS 1.0.3 Update Improves Syncing, Power Performance

The 1.0.3 update to your Palm Pre doesn't add any new apps, but it does fix a few things in Gmail, Contacts and Calendar syncing. Here's the changelog:

Feature changes to existing applications Calendar

* Events created in your Google calendar-either in Calendar on your phone or in Google online-that contain a symbol or accented character in the event name can now synchronise. Previously, including a symbol or accented character in an event name prevented the event from synchronizing. * Changes made to Google events on the phone now sync with Google online within a few minutes. * The sync interval for Google events has been decreased from every few hours to every 15 minutes.

Clock

Contacts

Email
