Palm Pre gets updated to WebOS 1.2 with several enhancements

Yesterday was a pretty big day for Palm Pre owners with the release of WebOS 1.2 as described on the Palm blog. There are a number of significant and worthy updates that make the update a must have for Pre owners. However, you may want to exercise just a bit of caution as James Kendrick over at jkOnTheRun discovered that the Palm Profile server had gone down so backup and restore was not working. The server is back up now so it should be fine to perform the update, but for those that did it before the server went down you may have found a few things that didn't come back (theme customizations for one) and none of your homebrew apps will come back. This just goes to show that syncing to the cloud isn't always a fail safe solution.

Manage your calendar and team members with Franklin Covey FCmobilelife on your phone

Nokia just made their Sync on Ovi service available for those of you with S60 devices who want to sync you PIM data (calendar, contacts, tasks, etc.) to a server and have it backed up and secure. You also have the choice to use an Exchange, or hosted Exchange service, or a BlackBerry service for this functionality. I was reading Mobility Site and the words Franklin Covey caught my attention since I used these planners for years before discovering my first Palm Pilot. I am not sure how long Franklin Covey has been offering this server sync/backup solution, but they now have a free version that is limited to yourself and one team member.
