Windows Phone 7 connector for Mac

We knew that Microsoft was working on Windows Phone 7 compatibility with Mac.  Microsoft stated, "Later in 2010 Microsoft will make a public beta available of a tool that allows Windows Phone 7 to sync select content with Mac computers."  It now appears that "later" is going to be sooner than expected.

Electricpig.co.uk has been testing the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac and has been pleased with it's performance.  The Connector, once loaded on to your OS X machine, syncs your iTunes content and playlists with your Windows Phone through iTunes.  There is no support for Wifi as of yet.

It's not Zune for Mac but it's a start.  Speculation is that a Beta of the Connector will be launched on October 24.  We'll keep an eye out for the Beta and keep you posted.

  • looks a lot like iTunes
  • Windows 7 Phone Connector for Mac is a perfect example, no synchronization of the media, but not by mail, notes, contacts and appointments from iCal, Address Book, it would probably be much more important.This good to see, because I think is important that users of other operating systems to connect your phone to your computer and synchronize files and images.
  • Another great option for this windows 7 phone!!
