RIM Releases BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager


We are a small advertising & marketing firm and have switched to the BlackBerrys but do not want to invest in the hardware. This type of application would be a very cost effective approch for us. Does anyone have an idea on when/if this software will be available for Mac's?

Is anyone having problems installing this on a Vista computer? I kept getting a message that the setup.exe file as caused an error when trying to install it.
