Windows Phone 7 syncing for Mac confirmed

New software heading to OSX for WP7 fanatics

Microsoft plays nice with Apple as Windows Phone 7 revolution gathers pace.

Microsoft has confirmed that it will be releasing sync software that will let new Windows Phone 7 owners snaffle content directly from their OSX-packing Macs.

The move isn’t necessarily a surprise, but does go to show just how far the Big M and Cupertino have come in recent years. Such a sync would have been unthinkable back in the day.

In a statement, Microsoft said, “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.” While that’s vague, it likely means you’ll be able to nab tunes and certain shows and movies, as well as calendar info.

Enough to convince you hardened Mac-lovers out there that WP7 is the way to go? Tell us your thoughts on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
