BlackBerrys Get Sweeter with SugarSync


m_sugarsync-bb21If you thought your BlackBerry (s RIMM) couldn’t possibly be more useful, you might want to think again. Sharpcast just announced a public beta of SugarSync for BlackBerry; the company already has mobile clients for Apple’s (s AAPL) iPhone and Microsoft’s (s MSFT) Windows Mobile platforms. The handheld client works with the SugarSync service: You can store and sync files between Macs or PCs and the cloud, where you can access them on your handest. Here’s a rundown of the main mobile features on a BlackBerry:

  • Remote file access retrieval and upload support for Office docs, music, videos and more.
  • On-demand file synchronization.
  • Shared folder access: You can send an e-mail link for a shared folder right from your BlackBerry.
  • Photo browsing and uploading direct from the handset.

BlackBerry owners that are already using the paid SugarSync service can grab the beta software here. Not using SugarSync yet? No prob. They offer a free 45-day trial.

“GigaOM reference to SugarSync file sync service also falls short of my requirement of data-on-my-finger-tip around-the-clock. Definitely SugerSync is a good service. But I have few thoughts with my hats.”
