Jon Lech Johansen Speculates on How the Palm Pre Syncs Music and Video With iTunes

I think he’s got it: the Pre is masquerading as an iPod over USB. Johansen expects Apple to block this in a future update to iTunes. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, but I’m not so sure.

Also, answering my questions from yesterday, Pre iTunes syncing works on Windows, too, and because it’s masquerading as an iPod should work in both directions.
