What about using ogr2ogr?

ogr2ogr -f "MapInfo File" mapinfo.tab input.shp
You have to write a script for batch conversion.

I have downloaded several sheets (approx 1600 files) from UK Ordnance
Survey open data web site in ESRI shapefile format and OS grid
references and now I need to convert them to MapInfo format and real
world co-ordinates.

I currently have available GRASS and Quantum GIS in linux and Mapinfo
4.1 & 5 running in windows emulation. Don't laugh, poverty dictates I
can't afford to update.

Does anyone know of a better solution than loading each shapefile into
QGIS then save as Mapinfo and keeping the OS grid ref.?
