If you're into testing beta software or have a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha you're making use of, BlackBerry Desktop Software v7.1.0.31 Bundle 32 is now available for download in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. As it pertains to normal devices, the changes are as follows:

  • Add a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet that has BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0.1 or later installed on it 
  • Sync your music by individual songs or by collections of music, including albums
  • Sync all of your configured data at one time by toggling the sync button in a synchronization screen
    and selecting Sync All
  • Drag and drop picture and video folders from your computer into the BlackBerry Desktop Software
    to sync with your smartphone or tablet
  • Learn about Music, Pictures, and Videos before configuring the features

For Dev Alpha owners, the update says you should be able to reload the software on your device but there appears to be some conflicting reports. Please, check here for more details. Based on that info, we should see a Dev Alpha OS update next week and until then it is suggested folks don't wipe their Dev units. The update can be found in the BlackBerry Beta Zone right now.

can't wait the next alpha build release (hopefully next week) ... Mine is wiped bad. But that's rocking news !

(edited after article update, thx Bla1ze)

Reloading the Dev Alpha doesn't work right now (already tried on a couple of different computers). Hopefully they have the kinks worked out next week for Dev Alpha loading.

Nice to hear of some changes in music management, it currently is a nightmare for me to get songs, I have to build playlists in iTunes, convert the playlist to another format that BlackBerry Desktop Software can even recognize and sync from there.

Moving forward, I hope they plan to hook Appworld into BlackBerry Desktop Software, search, download and post apps reviews and being able to wifi sync the apps when the BB device is in range would be a welcome direction..

I wonder if RIM is considering adding functionality to sync your BlackBerry handset data (contacts, calendar, etc.) to your PlayBook either via Desktop Manager (or wirelessly through wifi or bridge... preferably)?

i am having trouble connecting my playbook running 2.1.560 to desktop manager. I can't connect to both mac and pc. I hav also tried this version as wel..

Is anybody else having this problem too?
