Google Apps Connector Syncs BlackBerry, Gmail Platforms

Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server fills a small niche, letting companies fully utilize their managed BlackBerry environment with Google Apps e-mail services rather than platforms such as Microsoft Exchange Server or IBM Lotus Notes. With the Connector in place, users can utilize BlackBerry's native client applications for e-mail, calendar and contacts for push e-mail and (almost) full synchronization between devices and the cloud.
