    Desktop Manager for Mac released!


    No we're not pulling your leg this time. You read that head line right. RIM has officially made Desktop Manager for Mac available to download. RIM had delayed the launch for some unknown reason pushing the release to this month. As been said before, better late than never. About a week ago the Inside BlackBerry Blog took you through a detailed walk through of the new software. Now is your chance to check out Desktop Manager for Mac yourself.

    It has most of the same features as the Windows version but looks a lot sexier. You can easily sync your data from iCal®, Address Book, and Microsoft® Entourage®. Automatically backing up your device is simple and includes the ability to encrypt the data too. It does more than the usual things you expect too. Integrated into Desktop Manager for Mac is BlackBerry Media Sync which enables you to sync with iTunes with your BlackBerry. Creating a playlist including song information and album art can also be done from within Desktop Manager

    The way RIM has made the software look for and install OS updates looks slick too. Any time a BlackBerry device is connected, it will look for updates. If you are familiar with using App Loader, this will look familiar. More useful in fact as it gives you the ability to easily backup your data including third party application. Though backups are stored in a new format, .bbb, if you have an old back up in the .ipd format, it will be still be compatible. Overall it feels well laid out and easy to use.

    Just installed DM and I love it. I just hope we start to see leaked OS's with .dmg files.

    Brainstorm with me .

    What if we extract all of the files in windows , and then just take them to the MAC we can use either a Virtual Machine or a usb . Can the DM recognize them

    What do you think.

    I saw another thread on here awhile ago that mentioned how to load a hybrid using Mac DM. I can't find that thread now for some reason...

    In any event, can someone confirm if this would work for a leaked OS??? I have .230 for my Tour sitting on my desktop and don't know what to do with it!

    Here is the link to that thread. I have not tried it yet but it seems plausible.
