    As far as I can tell, this is a much-anticipated piece of garbage.
    It does not sync contacts or anything at all to my blackberry tour.

    Don’t believe the hype.

    Any word on if it’s compatible with the Tour and will it sync with Entourage?

    Why ever is it taking so long ?? I am in a bit of a pickle you see – My iphone 2 g fell and broke beyond repair. I have been struggling with a nokia 3110C (not a bad phone at all ) as a temp. I borrowed my mom’s blackberry 8900 and am using it but beta Desktop for Mac does not do the contacts properly. I find that several contacts that have multiple numbers do not transfer more than 1 number.
    I have to return the BBerry soon – I cannot get my mitts on an iphone 3g S cause its not released in my country yet and no ETA – only available in Grey and I dont want that.
    So unless RIM moves its rear-end and releases Mac desktop – I dont know whether to invest in a Bold or 8520 or 8900 OR to suffer with a Nokia E71 (not a fan of S60) OR to bite the bullet and break the bank and buy the iphone

    FRUSTRATING !!!!!!!
