PlayBook to get Mac sync support in summer
RIM has responded to a query as to when the BlackBerry PlayBook will get support for Desktop Manager on Macs. A spokesman told CrackBerry that an update would come "this summer." Buyers who have the tablet currently get nothing with a connection as the device isn't recognized, even when set to a Mac-friendly mode.
The PlayBook can be used as a network drive, however, as one connected with a microUSB cable will start the driver installation process. Users can then drag and drop files such as photos, movies, documents and other files. Files can also be transferred over Wi-Fi.
RIM has usually been Windows-centric through its tight connection to the enterprise but has branched out to sync media through its own native app.
