You will also be able to add or remove applications, update your handset when new software becomes available, back up your data and even schedule automatic back up sessions, and manage multiple devices. The Desktop Manager will work on Macs running OS 10.5.5 or higher. Click on this link and you can sign up to receive an emailed notice when the software will be available.

Strongly disagree. All of my Mac computers have been GREAT. I gotta say I'm stoked that this has FINALLY come to fruition! I've been wanting Mac compatibility for my Storm since I bought it. My frustration with the lack of native Mac compatibility has had me wondering if I would be willing to look into an iphone if it ever came to VZW (I'm not leaving VZW for shitty network like ATT). And this little gem of info is going to keep me grounded with a BB for a long time to come. THANK YOU RIM!

I agree with u 100%. I got a macbook last year and never wished i had windows. People say "Once you go to Mac, You'll NEVER go back" MAC ALLL THE WAY!!!!!

ive used many apple computers. thats all we had when i was in highschool. i mean the new ones are nice looking but i just don't like them. they all have that stupid gay, grey and boring interface. and i hate the mice that come with it. :-)

and thats exactly why i don't have a mac because some programs are not compatible. or the ones that are, the windows version is much nicer looking. for example Microsoft office 2007, windows version- way better.

All I can say is that my Macs have never let me down and have ALWAYS been reliable. Sure, not all programs are compatible, but I'm not willing to settle for a sub-par computing experience for the sake of a phone...especially when there are programs out there like doubletwist that allow me to make semifunctional interface use with my Mac. I'm not into checking all the latest leaked OS versions of my BB anyway and I was able to score the upgrade of my Storm right OTA so that wasn't to much of an issue, but it's just nice to be able to have a native program now. To tell you the truth I'm VERY surprised RIM didn't get on this sooner with all the many Mac users out there now anyway.

lol, I use Windows and I had an iPhone and I haven't tried Mac yet, still I'll stick to Windows due to programs in-compatibility.
