Sync-Tool for Linux and Blackberry in Beta Test

Oct 09, 2008

Information Appliance Associates have started a beta test program of a synchronization tool for Linux and Blackberry.

The open-ended program began earlier this week. According to the manufacturers, the new sync software has been developed over the last 18 months. To test the tool, registration and compliance with a non disclosure agreement is necessary.

Based in San Diego, Information Appliance Associates is the company behind the Pocketmac. They concentrate mainly on the distribution of synchronization software for Mac and Windows systems. But their claim that the new tool is the first of its kind is not entirely true. The open source project Barry, also enables Linux users to synchronize with Blackberry and has, the project says, been available since 2005.
