Windows Phone 7 syncs with Macs via new Zune software

zune.pngGood news for Mac users that own a Zune and plan to get their hands on a Windows 7 phone. Microsoft have confirmed that not only are they finally releasing Zune software for Macs later this year, and that it will sync Macs with Windows 7 phones.

Engadget
were the first to get hold of a statement from Microsoft which simply read:

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.

The news is certainly a surprise for Mac users since they’re usually bottom of the pile when it comes to support for Microsoft products. Maybe it’s a sign that Microsoft are finally taking the ever increasing numbers of people switching from Windows to Macs seriously.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Zune software for Macs will be as comprehensive as it is for Windows. It also poses the question – are there actually any Mac users out there that have a Zune or plan to get a Windows 7 phone?
