I keep forgetting that Apple users might prefer a Blackberry. Until recently, they’ve been treated pretty crappily, and there was very little support for syncing your devices. The application, entitled Blackberry Manager, looks like it’s straight out of iTunes’ iPhone section. It gave me a little bit of a chuckle, but I guess there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. The software will be available in September, and allow users to:
BlackBerry Desktop will be able to sync iTunes playlists (assuming they contain non-DRMed songs, of course), calendar info from iCal, contacts, notes, and tasks. It will also allow users to add and remove applications from their devices, perform updates to BlackBerrys when they become available, back up and restore data, and even manage multiple devices. Basically, kind of like what iTunes does for the iPhone, except for the BlackBerry.
If I had a Blackberry and an Apple Laptop I’d be rejoicing right about now.
