The story at the link posted by the OP gives some technical details and makes some comparisons. A lot of it was over my head. I assume RIM would have good explanations for why it did things the way it did, but some of it makes you wonder. For example the Desktop Manager encryption algorithm makes one pass -- whatever that means, exactly -- while other products make multiple passes, which sounds better, but I have no idea.

I'm thinking of ABCAmber Converter. Not sure if it can read encrypted files, but it can open backup files and you can read the contents of emails, text messages, address book, etc. You don't even need a password to open the file, even if you needed one to make the backup in the first place.
