BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6.1 Coming Soon

BlackBerry-Desktop-Manager-6-1110328113110The BlackBerry desktop manager has not seen an update in quite a while. With the rumors and partial confirmation from RIM that OS 6.1 is due this spring, it makes sense to see an upgrade to DM.  The guys at BGR have posted some screen shot that confirm DM 6.1 will be out this spring also.

One of the things they notice is the it will be able to  select not to use previous backed up  or synced device data.  Other than that there really isn’t much information available to us. We expect probably some changes in the appearance and more functionalities for 6.1 compatibility.

  1. well.. im still on dm5..

  2. the Jump from 5 to 6 was nice but they need to detail more about 6.1

  3. I find DM 5 to be more functional then DM 6. Especially with an IT Policy in effect. There’s actually very little I can do with DM 6.

  4. I’m with the above, I still use DM5, I find it works better and has a more user friendly UI

  5. agreed that there was some loss but the UI on 6 is way easier than 5. All the laptop users I have pushed this for seem to catch on with 6 much easier than 5. Maybe that was the goal.

  6. I happen to used both 5.0 and 6.0 I hardly ever use DM though. 5.0 bc it allows me to sync certificates and 6.0 on the other pc.

  7. I use DM 6 but keep a copy on 5 also because it can read & decrypt my encrypted media files with roxio media manager. DM 6 would be perfect if it could do that

  8. Am I missing a way to do folder redirection with DM 6? I have rules set up in Lotus Notes (ya, my company uses it) to move new emails into folders, which without folder redirection do not get sent to my BB. With DM 5 I can add these folders to the “send to BB” list. DM6, not so much.

  9. lets wait and see what devices will os 6.1 support
