The release of Desktop Manager for Mac is looking to be very imminent. The Boy Genius Report has gotten their hands on the new software and has a nice tour (no pun intended) of the features. Overall Desktop Manager for Mac looks great, and works well. I'm sure all of you Mac fans are already foaming at the mouth, so I won't waste any time and get straight to the images.
You can save your password in your keychain so you don't have to enter it in every time you want to connect to your BlackBerry.
You can give your BlackBerry a name. We all know you have a cute little name for it. Bryan calls his Fluffy.
Would you like to automatically backup your BlackBerry? It'll even encrypt it.
Let's transfer some music to your BlackBerry. Just one minor nusicance, the transfer speed seems to be slow, just like it is in Media Sync for Windows.
It's great how you can easily choose to backup all data or just selected data. Backups are saved in .bbb format rather than .ipd as with Windows.
You can see that Desktop Manage for Mac looks great. Not only that, but it also works well too. BGR has been playing with the software for a few days without any noticeable quirks or problems. It works significantly faster than Desktop Manager for Windows. Nor is it as bloated. This is not the final version either. Which is impressive thus far.
The only real caveat which has already been reported is the issue of loading leaked operating systems. There isn't any way to manually have Desktop Manager load an OS. It must be downloaded directly by Desktop Manager and RIM servers.
