Default Desktop Manager

What are the differences between Desktop Manager 4.3 (I guess it is shipping with the 8130's) and 4.2 - service pack 2? Can it be downloaded somewhere, and is it worth the upgrade if you are using an 8100?
Thanks,
Don

It can be downloaded from RIM's site. It adds a few conversion features in Roxio and adds sync for Lotus but beyond that there is not much difference. Also, it has quite a few bugs and I don't recommend it. There are a few threads on this already...

Here's one:

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8700g: BlackBerry8320/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

I also don't recommend it. I put back on 4.2 SP2. Right now it seems as though Desktop Manager 4.3 is no more than a buggy, cosmetic "upgrade," at least for me anyways.

The Tide ran off Shula (not saying Saban isn't an improvement - but I think Shula would have had just as mediocre of a year), and now with 4 losses for the year, some of these idiots are campaining that Tubberville has got to go!!

I think Tubberville is going to leave anyway. He already owns a house in college station

on topic
there are no real benefits except the way it looks
