Today, “MacBerry” users will finally have their day in the sun as BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac is released. We’ve already given you our thoughts on it (recap: it’s faster and more simple than Desktop Manager for Windows, but doesn’t really offer anything in the way of support for BES users or those who like to tinker) so all there is left for you to do is download it and enjoy.
