RIM Promises New Mac Tools, It’s About Frickin Time

It’s been on their radar since 2004 and they won’t have anything until next year? 5 frickin years to enable Mac users with full native support on Mac OSX. I’d buy another Blackberry today were it not for the crappy desktop manager that is PocketMac.

Let’s call this what it is, RIM was perfectly content to let users suffer with third party software that offered limited features when their only competitor was Windows Mobile, but now that the iPhone is making inroads with RIM’s core market well Mac support is suddenly important. Fuckers.

“We know that we don’t have an ideal solution for Mac users,” the RIM source said. “It’s something that’s been on our radar since 2004, at least.”
