So far, Mac and Windows are the only operating systems Research In Motion have supported for their BlackBerry Desktop Manager. This has left many Linux and others left in the dark for a solution to backup their BlackBerry and more. Luckily one developer has been steadily working on LinBerry for Linux, which has finally made it to beta. With LinBerry you can perform backups, manage contacts, manage applications, and use your BlackBerry as a modem for connecting to the internet.

Items expected in future versions:

  • Upgrade the OS of the device.
  • Make Wipe (memory reset) device.
  • Sync with Evolution and / or Thuntherbird Ligthning.
  • Multilingual support beginning with the English language.
  • And much more!

Try out LinBerry if your on Ubuntu or another Linux-based operating system and let us know in the comments if it is a good alternative for BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
