BlackBerry Link 1.0.0.71 Available for BlackBerry 10 Now!

I figured we'd start with the good stuff: the download link - http://us.blackberry.com/software/desktop/blackberry-link.html

RIM as posted a page and a download for BlackBerry Link, for syncing your BlackBerry 10 Smartphone with your PC (only BlackBerry 10, OS7 and older will still need to use Desktop Software). It can also be used to transfer data from an OS7 or older device to your new BB10 Smartphone.

And for all you Mac users out there, it looks like there's both a PC and a Mac version.

Setup seems fairly straightforward. You name your PC, select your music source, sign in to BlackBerry ID, and you're good to go.

I must say, I'm loving the new UI. BlackBerry did an awesome job of getting BlackBerry Link done right!

From the official site:

Seamless content management

Access, sync, share and organize all your photos, music, videos and files over Wi-Fi® or USB between your BlackBerry 10 devices and your computer.1

Music can be synced and shared between your BlackBerry 10 device and your PC or Mac, with support for both Windows Media Player® and iTunes. Photos, videos and documents can easily be synced with selected folders too.

Easy to use

BlackBerry Link is easy to set up, and you'll be prompted to download the software when you first connect your BlackBerry 10 device to your computer. Once installed you'll enjoy fast and seamless access to your media and documents. BlackBerry ID® sign in with BlackBerry Link allows you to automatically associate your computer with your BlackBerry 10 device(s) that are signed in with the same BlackBerry ID.

Your desktop library is presented in the same way as your device content, so you can always find what you want. Just drag and drop collections or individual items to sync to your device.

Secure back-up and updates

Your device data can be securely backed-up with BlackBerry Link. Then, if needed, your content can be restored in just a few simple steps.

It's also easier than ever to check for and install device software updates – BlackBerry Link will alert you when software updates are available.
