Many of you have been waiting for this day since October, and here it is: the official Windows Phone 7 Connector app for Mac computers is ready.

There is probably a larger population of Mac computer users with Windows phones than one might expect. This replaces the clunky beta version and the need to use Boot Camp to transfer data between a WP7 smartphone and a Mac. Such possible syncing include music and movies from iTunes, images from iPhoto and system updates for the WP7 device.

Obviously compatible with any WP7 handheld (and also the Zune HD), Mac users will need to have at least Mac OS 10.6.6 installed on their computers for this deal to work. The WP7 Connector app is free and available to download from the Mac App Store now.
