A pre-announce on their homepage.

Lets hope it's better than pocketmac - then again it would be hard to be worse !

This is fantastic news! I've used MissingSync on Hiptop and Treo, and it works flawlessly. AND, they have EXCELLENT Customer Support. We're FINALLY going to get some decent sync software for a change!

If I weren't already drinking a class beer, I'd have to break one out and celebrate!

I have had fairly good results with PocketMac with the exception of Task syncing. That said, if Missing Sync works with Entourage (it appears that it does from what I read) adds a way to load OS upgrades and it solves my Task sync issue I would certainly give it a try.

Just when I had finally got PM4 to work (with the new beta version - the original PM4 was as bad as v3). But Missing Sync products definitely seem better engineered and more reliable overall.

I'll believe it when I see it. MissingSync for hiptop was TERRIBLE. There was very little support and it never really worked correctly. I'm not the only one that had this problem either. That said, it might be great.

Here's a link to an article on it: MacNN | Mark/Space debuts sync for Blackberry, Macs

No Beta yet, but this is MarkSpace page for the BB: The Missing Sync for BlackBerry - Synchronize Mac OS X and BlackBerry
(It says "Coming Soon" which means sometimes during this decade. If it isn't here by June I am going iPhone!)

Yeah, but the thing is going to a makeup/fingerprint MAGNET...AND..without a keyboard.

Best of luck if you do though...

It does have an on screen keyboard, which has been reported to be useable, but the jury is still out on how efficient it may be to use. </side discussion>

Makeup?
Thank goodness there's no keyboard: It takes 40% phone space!
