Today Microsoft released on Microsoft Download Center Windows 7 Phone Connector for Mac. The software is still BETA however you can get a fully working copy on the site if you want to try it out on your MAC. It’s good to see Microsoft is attempting to not repeat their mistakes with ZUNE and at least the video is short and sweet.
What the app does is basically let you sync your Windows 7 Phone including Files, Music and Photos to you MAC in an organized fashion. Basically an iTunes(ish) app. Fairly simple and straight forward.
Here’s a few links where you can grab the Connector for the MAC:

Well,i don’t think apple will release an IPhone connecter With the Zune Program…Really a cleaver idea from Microsoft
I’m going to bet Microsoft is trying to distance the window 7 phone from zune which was a flop. Why else would they not try to strengthen the brand by creating Zune software for the Mac.
Good move I guess… But it still really feels fragmented vs. iTunes for Pc or Mac.
