BlackBerry Desktop Software 6.1 Makes First Appearance

Heralding the launch of NFC and augmented reality-enabled BlackBerry handsets, an updated version of RIM’s desktop software companion has broken cover. BlackBerry Desktop Software 6.1 has a few new features by the looks of it, like forgetting a previously synced device if you don’t want to have extraneous backup data cluttering your computer, and launching Desktop Software automatically when your BlackBerry is plugged in.

It’s not much, but I’m sure we’ll see lots of other new features once BlackBerry Desktop Software 6.1 is ready for prime time. The last big update to the desktop software included a built-in interface for tethering and a music sync function over Wi-Fi.

Whatever the feature set may be, the appearance of Desktop Software for 6.1 signals a launch of new BlackBerry handsets is just around the corner. BlackBerry users, you have any particular complaints or a wishlist of features for the next version of Desktop Software?
