I have been searching for ages looking for Blackberry Desktop Software for Linux. You see RIM decided in their wisdom not to support Linux when developing their Desktop Software and only go with Windows and Mac OS. Thanks guys!!
Then today I came across a piece of software called Linberry. And voila my search is over.
Linberry allows you to backup your phone or Playbook to your desktop PC so if you lose your phone you don’t lose your contacts or everything else on it.
So what else can it do?
It can also restore your phone from a previous backup.
You can also install and uninstall applications to your phone. Just download the application to your PC and then upload it to your phone.
You can also view your entire contact list on your PC too!!
Last but not least is the option to use your phone as a modem to the internet. This would come in very handy if you happen to be in some remote place (i.e Scottish highlands) and quickly need to access something online.
Just a quick note. If you do decide to use your phone as a modem then be aware that your data allowance will be used up quicker than normal when using the internet on either a desktop or laptop.
Linberry is still in Beta at the moment and the developers are hoping to add more features in the near future but personally I think this is a very good start.
