S4BB let us know that they have updated the public beta of their DataBackup app. This new version adds the ability to backup memos along with contacts to your SD card. SmrtGuard and PhoneBAKup do this for a fee already so it will be interesting to see how much S4BB charges for this when it comes out. You can also use iDrive Lite for OTA contacts backup free. I really hope that RIM is starting to realize that PIM backup is a must for consumers and having to wait until you sync with desktop manager is not a solution.
