Well, this came out of nowhere. Inside BlackBerry has just let everyone know that starting today, beta invites will go out to BlackBerry Beta Zone members so that they may have access to the all new, all fresh looking BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6. Certainly not a lot of details were posted other than that. Instead, Inside BlackBerry let the pictures do the talking for them. The design is that of what Mac Desktop Manager users have had for a while now, except its got way more polish added too it and it looks great. If you have yet to sign up for the BlackBerry Beta Zone you might wanna finally get on that! What do you all think? Looks great right?!? More pics after the break.

It sure does look pretty :) Too bad I can't sign up to the beta zone :(

Connor83

Why can't you sign up?

vagabanda

you can

just sign through your blackberry or a proxy, so you get a canadian IP

did this way and worked, I'm in Brasil

VeniceBB

@Connor83, I'm in the Netherlands, we're not listed... but now I think I may have to try the proxy or BB thing :D Thanks for the tips guys

Connor83

Well lets hope that works for ya then.

alex3305

I signed up this evening with a CGI proxy: http://sers.info/ - try it out!

I would recommend that you use a 'fake' password when signing up using the proxy ;).

imdabold1

That is what I did initially too but then they widened the list of available countries to include most of the Caribbean.

cannon83

This looks great...I hope I get picked!!!

Connor83

I'm loving the look of it. I can't wait to snag this up.

level 2

I wasn't picked for the BBM beta, and I don't see this on my Beta page either.

Are they not choosing candidates with years in the wireless industry that wear out BB's faster than Michael Jordan wore out sneakers?

Anyone at BB paying attention?

Connor83

I hear ya on that one. I was wishing i could get that beta for the BBM (but couldn't/can't) and i really hope i can get this.

leecott

RIM has been bs-ing a lot lately.

SeanBest

Nothing in my Beta page ... hoping.

hytekchaos

wowser that sure is a sexy interface.
wonder if ill get invite for it... just checked my beta zone and its not listed for me....:(

Connor83

Just showed up for me.

bigbadwulff

BUT CAN YOU SAVE YOUR CONTACTS AND GET THEM ON ANOTHER TYPED OF PHONE??!!

mister_right

Yes, the second pic shows that you can do it.

j.p.hatfield

be patient...they take up to 48 hours

yankees4204

the mac version prevents you from loading leaked operating systems. If this does the same not sure if i even want it. although it looks great

KeegdnaB42

It's not that the mac version doesn't allow leaks, it's that macs can't open the .exe files they're packaged in. I doubt it'll be a problem.

decypher44

As I finally got a PC. I've been using DM for mac and it has so few features! I'd love to be able to start using this!

But did not yet receive an invite. Not very optimistic either...

Jake Storm

Yeah, I wish DM for mac gets the same features.
Not all mac users got sucked into the iphone.

ihawkeyes

I just hope this fixes the sync issue with office 2010. I know there is a work around, but I'm not going through all that or paying for something to make it work. Crossing fingers to get invite.

PKeith

I'd be interested in finding out what the workaround is

alih5289

is there no mac version for blackberry 6 DM???

daedone

This is only the *BETA* for the PC version... you know how this works, stable for us, then it's your turn ;)

JerseyDriver

So since last year they finally actually put out Mac software years after saying it was coming, it was coming, it was coming, we've had what, three updates in a little under a year? And the at least one of the last two basically erased most of the calendar and/or contacts off of poeple's Berries if they weren't careful? You think they're going to update it for OS6? I won't hold my breath.

Jake Storm

I finally broke down and bought a netbook running Windows7 just so I could use DM for Windows.

valorian

ok, I got to get in on this Beta. I just signed up in the Beta Zone. I hope I can get in.

collin16

This showed up in my eligible programs list but after I continue and agree to the T and C there is no available download

Connor83

they will email you a link (may take up to 48 hous)

jaymillz11

Dis doesn't show up in my eligible programs list...I hope I get it soon

The_Adventist

I got in for BB Protect but not this yet. Here's hoping.

gregorylkelly

I think I'd prefer Blackberry Protect. This would be cool, but I'd rather be able to play around with all the Protect features rather than just a new interface with different (and better) features.

StaticFX

tried to sign up for the beta zone and it says its not available for my country... um... im in the US and it clearly says its available in the us!???

CantGetEnoughBB

Looks outsanding. From first impressions this will be a winner. Looks like some hard work has gone in here.

hitnar

Checked the beta site. Got invited.

Pete6

I really hope that RIM offer syncing to Outlook 2010 at release of Desktop Manager 6.

schlafen

Anyone got this installed and tested yet to see if it works with Office 2010?

Ormazd

I have had no trouble with syncing DM 6 to Outlook 2010. The only thing I'm not syncing right now are my contacts, which is done OTA.

I'm not sure which problems you are referring to, but if you'd like me to attempt a sync of my contacts manually, just let me know and I'll disable my wireless sync settings to test it.

_StephenBB81

Could you Please make a thread
http://forums.crackberry.com/f153/

There are many people wanting Office 2010 support from DM, if you could make a thread and post some screen shots that would be fantastic.

imdatnucayessir

I'm signed for the beta zone and haven't been able to sign up for the desktop or bbm..

PKeith

It looks slick. One question does it solve the problem of not being able to sync with Outlook 2010?

Zantee

Stopped even bothering to check if there is any invite for any BB beta

jstarett

i don't even see the option for me to do op in the beta testing

Dannyd534

this looks exactly like the Mac DM

joeybee

Just got an invite email from BetaZone

sp00k1

Any chances that, this release will have address the fix for Media Sync which as of now does not support syncing music from network shares (without mapped) and grey's out all playlists that have songs on the network?

dasDestruktion

I just got my email. :p I'm invited to the party!

Ormazd

I just got mine too!! I can't wait to give it a spin! :D

dcraig7

I got my invite for this today. I've gotten in on the FB Beta, BBM, and Podcast one. Loving these.

drakesaliasonline

BBM 5.0.1.32 from Beta Zone ..Hope I get my e-mail for DM 6.0 ..Got my fingers crossed!!..

aj10803

Just received the enail. Looks nice. Early build though

AllenRulz

It looks INCREDIBLE. Look, there is a section that says Applications, I PRAY we can now back-up our Apps. all in one place.

MILLYBLICK

i couldn't sign up for this... RIM what the fuxxk is up?? i know i didn't buy my bold for this bs. My email and password isn't working... why is this??

MILLYBLICK

guzzy2792

This is very nice, altough I've been a Beta Zone member and keep getting snaked on all the good betas, like the past two BBM releases. So my hopes aren't high for this.

freddymartinez9

So if you got an invite why don't you upload the actual file? Spread the love.

blazeddc

You can't you need an unlock code in order to install the application. I made it in but I am still waiting for my unlock code to be sent out.

freddymartinez9

....WOW. That is really weak shit.

dasDestruktion

Its how RIM controls everything leaking out all over the place.

vagabanda

and the keycode is PIN-based
wont work in other phones

chrisdivincenzo

Got the email sent to my phone and went to blackberry beta and accepted. I'm excited!!

fadown

whats that wallpaper shown on the 9700 i want it for my 9700

snakecdboy

can anyone provide me with a link as i am not a memeber of bb beta and they have closed the singups...

MILLYBLICK

Waking up this morning and seeing OS 6 available but not available pissed me off. Nice way to start off my day and ruin it.

mattpowell19

Yeah, as with everyone else....It hasn't shown up in my eligible programs list either.....

SuperECS

Now I just need my unlock code. Can't wait!

Ormazd

Did anyone else notice the double rainbow in the Picture media sync screen shot above? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!!?!?

NoahFecks

DOUBLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY!!

berryaddictnoza

It would be nice if BB desktop manager would be able to do desktop data entry so you wouldn't have to use MS Outlook for it.

xechno

I signed up and logged in but I don't see a link to the Desktop Manager 6...

xechno

WHERE can I download the Desktop Manager 6 off the beta site? I have already signed up yet it only gives me MSN, Yahoo, and Google beta's as eligible downloads...

Kretus

I want that beta stuff too, still waiting for it...

GaryG381

does this sync w storm 2 or what and will i be able to transfer contacts to a new phone

ssrcorley

Suuuuuure, if you're device will be 6.0 compatible. Storm 1/2 people are still yawning.

tfrankson

I really would love to get this

GibMcFragger

Don't people read before asking?

This is an INVITE ONLY beta, so if they haven't emailed you an invite.....Desktop Manager 6 won't show up in your eligible programs.

Once you log in and accept the invite, IT WILL TAKE UP TO 48hrs to get your keycode AND DOWNLOAD LINK emailed to you.

Lastly, STOP ASKING FOR DOWNLOAD LINKS, this software is linked to individual PIN's via a keycode, so even if you managed to get a copy....you can't use it unless you got invited in.

KeegdnaB42

Got my invite earlier but I'm still waiting for my code. Hopefully tomorrow

allendf

Didn't show up in beta zone for me yet. Hope it does...

Omnitech

ALL I WANT is a decent way to upgrade the OS without causing a major disaster for all my 3rd-party apps and data.

Please?

Pretty please?!?

jimmyzzz10

Where can I download Desktop manager 6 from?

NoahFecks

I suggest you go back to school and take some more simple reading classes. A LOT more actually.

MILLYBLICK

I just read somewhere that OS 6 will be releasing on the Bold 9700... if this is true... i can wait :)

stenberg13

Does anybody know where I can get the wallpaper from the device in the photo?

_StephenBB81

Anyone who is running This Beta are you also running Outlook 2010? I would like to know if they have fixed the Outlook Sync issue,

_StephenBB81

IF you have the Beta of DM 6 please create a thread in the DM forum
http://forums.crackberry.com/f153/

Lets get a discussion going about it, hopefully it wont get full of Code requests and people just looking to comment on everything.

vodert

Hi, the application form is not yet available for my country how can I download it :(

chrisdivincenzo

Took around less then a day to get my keycode, now I cannot wait to get home from work to download :). And people asking for download links and such are getting really annoying!

Thor1972

"...We're sorry, the application form is not yet available for your country. We are adding new country locations daily. Please be patient as we continue to expand across the globe..."

Dammit! :(

dagerlach

Will it do what we all want it to do...Just one simple little task...Will it SYNC with Microsoft Office Outlook 2010?

I've got this funny feeling it won't!

jlyriq

im so over BBbeta, whats the point of being a member if you can't test out the "good stuff" lol

bobs415

When is this new app spozed to be released to the unwashed masses?

kwp217#CB

Desktop 6 does look great. However, several things have come out in beta lately, but I never see it available in beta zone. BB needs to stop deceiving people into signing up if they're not going to make the new beta software available to all members. I'm highly disappointed!

Arch Nemesis

Am tryin 2 sign up an its not lettin me, can someone put up an example or something 2 help pleasssseeee gladly appreciated

KGBoston

It's on BBLeaks! seems the same to me though

Scimonetti

Hey guys, unless there this a problem with the the current BB Desktop version that I don't know about, I guess I don't get it.

For awhile, I thought I made the biggest mistake getting a Blackberry and trying to sync it to a MAC. A few years ago you Verizon said I had to down load Pocket Mac to sync it. It was a horrible program that nobody at RIM could help be get it working, Finally some sharp guy over at RIM told me NOT to return my Blackberry because if I wait a week, Blackberry will be coming out with a MAC-friendly desktop manager, and he was RIGHT!

This current version of BB Desktop Manager works so slick (at least on a MAC) I don't see why they would want to mess with it.

Oh I admit...this newer version looks real pretty. But I am really getting reluctant to jump into upgrades when I have everything running perfectly. Especially after the hours I wasted dealing with Pocket Mac. I am getting really gun shy about "New and Better" lately, so YOU GO FIRST and I'll just sit here and read the reviews.
