Mac-folk, pay attention. Everyone else should, too – you’ll all be using a Mac in 10 years, anyway (you heard it here first). We’ve all been trying countless ways to sync up our BlackBerry devices with our Mac computers over the years and to no avail.
Finally, Mark/Space has released a â€œpublic previewâ€ version of its forthcoming “The Missing Sync for BlackBerry” – syncing, hopefully, will never have been easier. Thanks to MacWorld for the heads up. I’m excited to give it a run-through when I make it home.
The Missing Sync for BlackBerry enables you to synchronize contacts, calendar info, notes and other data with a RIM BlackBerry smartphone, tethered using a USB cable. Owners of the BlackBerry Pearl model or the new 8800 series handsets can also sync iPhoto albums and iTunes playlists (of unprotected audio).
Mark/Space estimates that the release version of the Missing Sync for BlackBerry will be released at the end of the quarter. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4.8 and a BlackBerry handset running version 4.0 or later of the BlackBerry operating system.
