BlackBerry Desktop now on Mac OS

Rejoice Mac users!

Research In Motion (RIM), the makers of BlackBerry, has announced last yesterday that a version of its smartphones’ desktop software will be available for Apple computers on September.

Users can now sync their iTunes playlists, calendars, contracts, notes, and tasks from their Mac. Adding applications on your BlackBerry is also allowed and multiple handsets can now be managed on their computers.

There’s a catch though. RIM said that only Mac OS X versions 10.5.5 and up will be supported, so those Mac users who haven’t updated Leopard or those running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger likely won’t be able to run the software.

Aw, the unfairness of life. 😉
