We saw RIM sharing builds of Desktop Software v2.4 for Mac to Dev Alpha developers and now it is official. Right after I wrote up about the PC software being updated I happened to check that the Mac team has also released an update. The new v126.96.36.199 is now the official build of Desktop Manager for Mac.
The release notes for this build include support “for the new BlackBerry PlayBook tablets.” It specifically says that BlackBerry Desktop Software “now supports mobile network enabled tablets.” That is one more sign that the 4G PlayBooks are coming soon. Also improved is group to category sync for contacts and the ability to restore a backup created in Desktop Manager for Windows.
