Still unclear if Zune is coming to Mac
Microsoft is currently readying a software utility that will allow Windows Phone 7 handsets to sync with Macs. As expected, Windows Phone 7 Connector works solely as a sync tool rather than replicating the full functionality of Microsoft's Zune client for Windows machines.
The software can be configured to automatically sync a WP7 handset as soon as it is connected to the computer. Other options allow users to access content from iTunes and iPhoto, with individual items chosen using a checkbox system.
A Microsoft executive in the UK recently published a Twitter update hinting at a full Zune client for Macs, although the post was quickly removed. The company followed with a statement pointing to the sync utility, but the possibility of a Zune client has yet to be explicitly confirmed or denied.
Windows Phone 7 Connector is currently limited to private beta testing, with public availability expected sometime before the end of the year. [via Pocket-lint]
