It took BlackBerry (s rimm) a long, long time to release a proper media sync app for Mac (s aapl). Microsoft (s msft) seems much more keen to play nice. Today, it released Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac, which allows you to sync music, videos, photos and podcast from iTunes to your Windows Phone 7 device.
The platform itself only launched earlier this month, so it’s nice to see Microsoft moving so quickly to support Mac users. Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 also hits OS X tomorrow, and it’s a major improvement from previous incarnations from what I’ve seen so far. Maybe Redmond is tired of fighting against the tide, and just wants to ride the Apple wave. Though not everyone associated with Microsoft is embracing Cupertino.
Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac is a free download from the Windows Download Center, despite requiring Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) or higher.
