Microsoft doesn’t want Mac users to feel left out of the Windows Phone 7 game, so the company has announced plans to bring data syncing for its new smartphone platform to Mac OS X before the end of 2010.
The Redmond-based company isn’t sharing many details, like exactly when Mac sync support will be available, or what types of data can be synced via Mac OS X. Microsoft did confirm, however, that its Mac-based sync software will first be available as a public beta.

Microsoft introduced the Windows Phone 7 platform earlier this week with the catch phrases “always delightful,” and “wonderfully mine.” Nine Windows Phone 7 devices from various manufacturers were shown off during a special media launch event.
Windows Phone 7 smartphones will be available in Europe starting on October 21, and in the U.S. on November 8.
