Today I installed the BlackBerry Desktop Manager Version 220.127.116.11 (march 10, 2010).
This dashboard offers the following functions:
- Media Sync (synchronise iTunes or Windows Media Player music with BlackBerry device)
- Application Loader (add or remove applications, update software)
- Backup and Restore (backup or restore device data)
- Device Switch Wizard (transfer data from one device to another : BlackBerry, Palm or Windows mobile)
- Synchronize (synchronize email and organizer data)
- IP modem (set up BlackBerry device as a wireless modem for internet access)
The desktop manager works with my three different BlackBerry devices : 7100v, 8100 et 9000. It does not support my new Blackberry Z10.
The firmware and microedition versions are shown below :
My desktop manager was updated in 2011 to version 18.104.22.168 (Bundle 34), released on June 7, 2011, in 2012 to version 22.214.171.124 (Bundle 60), released on May 17, 2012 and recently to version 126.96.36.199 (Bundle 42), released on March 26, 2013.
With my Blackberry Z10, the Blackberry Desktop Manager was replaced by Blackberry Link, the latest version 188.8.131.52 was released on July 3, 2014.
