RIM to address Mac problems with new BlackBerry tools

Research In Motion BlackBerry users with Mac computers have for some time complained about the lack of Mac compatible BlackBerry tools, but all that will soon be changing.

Research In Motion is to release a new set of tools in the first half of 09 to address a number of quite long-standing moans from Mac users according to a nameless source within RIM.

At the moment, BlackBerry users with Macs can’t perform a few important functions which are built in to users running Microsoft Windows with RIM’s BlackBerry Desktop Manager software.

The Research In Motion source said: “We know that we don’t have an ideal solution for Mac users. It’s something that’s been on our radar since 2004, at least.”
