BlackBerry to Offer Mac Support

by Volker Weber

Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) and Information Appliance Associates (IAA) today announced a licensing agreement whereby RIM will offer 'PocketMac(R) for BlackBerry(R)' to Mac users, free of charge. PocketMac for BlackBerry is a desktop application that enables Mac users to synchronize data between their BlackBerry devices and Macintosh applications including core OS X version 10.4 "Tiger" applications and Microsoft Entourage.

RIM has licensed the complete version of PocketMac for BlackBerry from IAA and the companies plan ongoing product development collaboration. PocketMac for BlackBerry synchronizes the email, contacts, calendar, tasks and notes of Microsoft Entourage, OS X's Address Book and iCal, Now Contact and Now Up-to-Date, DayLite, and Stickies, among other applications. This easy-to-access solution for Macintosh synchronization is expected to be available as a free download at beginning in February.

I found PocketMac for Blackberry not really that good. Also, using the webmail-interface to set up the mail-account is a pain in the nec without IE and windows. There's lots of room for improvement for Blackberry with regards to Mac.
