According to pocketmac (reading the webpage -- they don't respond to email)

Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of BlackBerry, is about to release the new 8700 line of BlackBerry, the Pearl. It's a marvelous device, complete with camera, USB Mass Storage using a microSD memory expansion drive, and a tethered modem.

RIM has just made the new USB Driver available to PocketMac, and it is incorporated in version 4.0.

The good news: RIM has indicated that 4.0 will be released in September, in time to support the 8700.

Of course, the model number is wrong there, since the Pearl is the 8100, and PM already has support for the 8700. Anyway, looks like us pearl users are out of luck until PocketMac releases the new version, which, from reading threads here, has been promised since around mid-June.

Anyway. Wish this was noted a little more by any of the reviewers of the Pearl, or do they just assume nobody who has a mac has a pearl?!?

Now I gotta see if i can at least import contacts from Mac to outlook to Blackberry, so I can know who I'm calling. I really liked the pearl until I plugged it into my Mac...
