New Blackberry Desktop Manager For Mac Still Worse Than Windows Version

If you’re one of the approximately three Mac users who uses a BlackBerry instead of an iPhone, today is an exciting day. BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac OS debuted this afternoon. CNET had an early copy and has checked it out for us.

The previous software for Mac users, PocketSync, didn’t do much other than sync contacts between the user’s computer and smartphone, which set the bar quite low. CNET’s review shows the software to be more useful, with a pleasant, more Mac-like interface, but still lacking all of the functionality of the Windows version. Quelle surprise.
