Mac Users To Get BlackBerry Desktop This Fall…. About Time!

If you’re a Mac user and you’ve have a BlackBerry, Research In Motion hasn’t shown you any love in the past. You’ve had to make do with either Missing Sync or PocketMac to sync your BlackBerry to your Mac. That’s changing this fall. Research In Motion has announced that a version of its smartphones’ desktop software will be released this September for Apple computers. Here’s the quick feature set:

  • Sync your iTunes playlists, calendars, contacts, notes and tasks (I assume they got the blessing of Apple)
  • Add/Remove applications
  • Update your device when new software becomes available
  • Backup and restore your device data with such features like automatically scheduled backups and optional encryption
  • Manage multiple devices

And it will support Mac® OS 10.5.5 and above.

Cool. Go to and sign up so that when it hits the streets, you’ll be the first to know.
