At Long Last, BlackBerry Desktop Comes to Mac

Illustration for article titled At Long Last, BlackBerry Desktop Comes to Mac

After years of borrowing friends' PCs to update firmware, buying 3rd party sync apps and being generally frustrated by their technologies' poor communication skills, BlackBerry-owning Mac users may soon stop wanting to die: BlackBerry Desktop is coming to OS X.


Although there were workarounds more most BlackBerry sync/update/media needs, including a decidedly decent Media Sync app for iTunes syncing, the using a BlackBerry has never been easy for Mac types, and BlackBerry Desktop will make lots of peoples' live much, much easier.

The feature list:

* Sync your iTunes® playlists, calendars, contacts, notes and tasks
* 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 (security is #1 as always…)
* Manage multiple devices


The release is set for somewhere in September, or around two months from now, max. [BlackBerry]
