Information Appliance Associates, the creator of the original Mac-to-BlackBerry sync solution (also known as PocketMac for BlackBerry), announced on Tuesday a beta release of the first tool to sync Linux user data to the BlackBerry. The tool is dubbed "PocketMac for BlackBerry Linux Edition."

This beta version is the result of more than 18 months of development and testing; it's now open to the public for more input before a final version is created. The beta period starts Tuesday and is limited to a set number of users; if you're interested, you'd better sign up now.

It's worth noting that the beta version of PocketMac for BlackBerry Linux Edition is currently only being tested on the Xandros Linux distribution, and syncs against the KDE PIM application. However, in the near future, it will be made available to and functional with other distributions of the OS as well.

This is significant news for BlackBerry users, considering the proliferation of Linux-based PCs, especially with the introduction of ultratransportable computers, such as the Asus EeePC, that take advantage of Linux's low hardware requirement.

Like the previous sync tool for Macs, this Linux Edition likely will be made available for free once the beta test is over

Its excellent that Blackberry is adapting to market changes i.e. netbooks, but I just hate Xandros... lol, it looks exactly like Windows XP space theme and is just another ploy someone used to make money off of Linux because its backed by a corporate image, Pardus/Fedora (Red Hat is backed for businesses, Fedora isn't) aren't sold by huge organisations but theres far better than Xandros ever will be. Its time for Linux to end the profit-making regime Smiley
