Microsoft announces Windows Phone 7 sync software for Macs due this year (via Engadget)

Even
though we kind of saw
this coming
, it’s still nice to hear. Microsoft has gone and done the
(nearly) unthinkable, announcing this evening plans for a Mac compatible sync
client for its soon-to-be-launched Windows Phone 7 devices.
According to a statement from the company issued late in the day, beginning some
time “later in 2010” Mac users will be able to live the dream along with their
PC counterparts by downloading a beta OS X application which will allow you to
sync “select content” from a Mac of their choosing to a Windows Phone. The
company was short on details, but hopefully we can pry more info out the big M
in the coming days. For now, we can all bask in the shocking open-mindedness of
this news, and give the folks in Redmond a golf clap for finally acknowledging
that yes, some Mac owners may actually want to get in on the Windows Phone
party. As for Hell, there haven’t been any reports of recent temperature
changes, but we’ll keep you posted as we get more information. For your perusal,
the full statement:

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.

This is very good news!
