Blackberry Desktop, Office 2010, August Support, but not x64

I can’t imagine why Microsoft didn’t work harder to get RIM to offer timely support for Office 2010. (And I hate the iPhone+Apple+ATT monopoly that locks me out of getting an iPhone because AT&T refuses to build out coverage in Northern New England).

After months of silence, RIM has announced 32 bit only support “targeted for” August. And no 64 bit support until 2011.  Targeted is a weasel word. My perception is that RIM has crappy programmers and/or figures most people don’t care about either Office 2010 and/or sync.

They’ve posted the following (linked above):


Currently, BlackBerry Desktop Manager 5.0.1 does not support Microsoft Outlook 2010 64-bit version for mailbox connectivity and synchronization of organizer data such as Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and Memos. The next release of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager provides support for Microsoft Outlook 2010 32-bit version only. This release is targeted for August 2010. Support for Microsoft Outlook 2010 64-bit version will be available in 2011.
