Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Announced

Google's recent announcement of a Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) represents another big stride in the ongoing Google Apps vs. Microsoft Exchange Online war that has been shaping up.

Free for Google Apps Premier and Education customers, the Google Apps Connector will provide near-instant push of Gmail messages to end-user BlackBerry devices, over-the-air synch or read/deleted status, synch of folders with Gmail labels, one-way (Google to BlackBerry) calendaring synch based on Google Calendar, Contacts synch, and offline e-mail access. Unsupported features include labels and mailbox search. The connector is installed on a BES server within the customer environment.

We believe this to be a major step for Google, however the lack of mailbox search and the unidirectional calendar synch will be an issue for many customers. Google will need to respond quickly with support for these features if it is to gain much traction in the mid- and larger-sized enterprise arena. The July release will be adequate for small businesses that have a dependency on BlackBerry devices, and should open the door for larger-sized organizations to start taking a serious look at Google Apps as a contender for hosted messaging and collaboration. ...
