Default 8900 with Apple Mac

Please Login to Remove!

Hi - does anyone out there have experience of using the new 8900 in conjunction with a Mac computer ? I have always used a PC and MS Office software (Outlook) for syncing etc. I am thinking of getting a Mac and would like to hear of any issues before I go ahead. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I use a Mac. The Mac and the Blackberry can get along, but it isn't as smooth as with a PC. For some reason RIM hasn't put a whole lot of effort into keeping Mac users happy, but at the CES show, I was told this is changing.

That being said, you can sync Entourage (Mac's version of Outlook) as well as Mac's iCal using a free program called PocketSync. It's on blackberry.com. There are some hiccups with it, but it will sync calender, contacts, tasks, iTunes playlists, etc.
