BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac Updated to 1.0.3


BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac has been updated to version 1.0.3 with support for Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. Some of the fixes in this release include:

  • General – BlackBerry Desktop Manager did not connect with some BlackBerry 7130s using BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.
  • Synchronizing data – Modifying an occurrence or the full series of a recurring event on your device resulted in a duplicated entry on Microsoft Entourage. This was intermittent.
  • Calendar – Attendee status changed from “Accepted” to “Invited” after changing the meeting details after synchronization.
  • Contacts – Home fields were duplicated on your computer, if a different home number is added on the device and on the computer to an existing contact.

BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac details and impressions


mac desktop summary

The official word is that BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac will be coming in September. Don’t worry about downloading the software on that day because you will automatically get notified that an update is available and get a download link, if you’ve already downloaded RIM’s current Mac solution.

One of the great things about Desktop Manager for Mac is that it is an application built for Mac users. The software has a clean user interface and a simple navigation system. Sync’ing individual files is only one click away, whereas it is a few navigation clicks away in the PC version.

The software comes with integrated Media Sync for iTunes, and sync support for multiple iCal calendars and Entourage. You can also sync multiple devices at once.

Another great feature, especially for Storm users, is that it will automatically notify you of official carrier OS updates.

Again, the software is coming in September but we’ll have our full review for you before launch.
