After years of promising Mac support for the BlackBerry, RIM are finally releasing a Macintosh version of the popular BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
Looking somewhat similar to iTunes, RIM says the new sofware will enable users to:
- Sync calendars, contacts, notes and tasks
- Update the BlackBerry software
- Add and remove applications
- Back-up, restore and encrypt data
- Manage multiple devices
- Sync iTunes playlists
The software is expected to be released in September and will require Mac OS X 10.5.5 or above.
Recent research by Gartner shows BlackBerry leading the smartphone market with a 19.5% share with Apples iPhone growing rapidly in it’s first two years to hold approximately 10.7% of the market.
