Blackberry users get free Mac sync software

Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) is to give away software to enable users to synchronise their mobile data with Apple’s Mac OS X operating system.

The move is designed to help RIM further establish the use of its push e-mail mobile devices within the Mac user community.

The PocketMac program had previously been sold for about £17, and has been available to users since 2004.

Mark Guibert, RIM vice-president of marketing, said, “This licensing agreement will help expand the reach of the Blackberry to another important market segment.”

The decision follows a licensing deal between RIM and Apple. It is expected that free downloads of the software will be available from the RIM website some time next month.
