After many years of being available only for Windows, RIM announced today that a version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Apple’s Mac OS X will be released on Friday.
This will allow users to sync data from Mac applications like iCal, Address Book, Microsoft Entourage and others, as well as add and remove applications, schedule automatic backups, encrypt backup files, and install system software updates for their device.
This app will integrate with BlackBerry Media Sync, allowing Mac users to sync their iTunes music collections with their BlackBerry. From within the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software, users will be able to select the desired iTunes playlists and the music, including song information and album art, will be transferred onto their smartphone.
Pricing & Availability
BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac OS X will be released October 2 at 1:00 pm EDT.
