The handheld database manager, HanDBase, just got bumped up to version 4, with a few new bells and whistles, including Vista support. The UI has gotten a bit of a facelift, the OS X client now has searching and sorting functions (which seem pretty vital for database work), 5-way navigation for Palm and Windows Mobile, and a few other things. As ever, HanDBase syncs with Microsoft Access through a bundled utility, although it’s wired only. If you’ve got a boatload of information that you want to keep an eye on from your BlackBerry, you can pick HanDBase up for $39.95 over here.
Jibi has managed to get some shots of the new BlackBerry Desktop Manager in action, but it doesn’t look like there’s much new outside of a graphical overhaul. Still, it’s a nice facelift, and well-suited for the slick visual style of Vista. We can expect to see the new Desktop Manager alongside the BlackBerry 8120 whenever it decides to hop the pond (maybe December?).
