In addition to syncing with your Mac you can also add and remove programs, schedule automatic backups, encrypt backup files and install firmware updates to your BlackBerry device. BlackBerry Media Sync is also included so you can sync iTunes to your BlackBerry (Palm should develop software like this for the Pre). Album art is also supported with Media Sync. This is great news for BlackBerry owners who have a Mac and I hope to try it with a trial BlackBerry soon.
