Rivalry Between Apple and Palm Intensifies

The Palm Pre has a large touch screen, slide-out keyboard and fast Web browsing. Palm also likes to point out that another selling point is the smartphone’s ability to link to iTunes, Apple’s popular software for managing music and other media on a computer.Trouble is, Apple wants to make sure the iPhone is the only cellphone that can do that. So it changed its software to block the Pre’s access to iTunes.Now Palm is calling foul and is trying to rally the consumer electronics industry to its defense.
