Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Coming August 2009
Google has always been aggressive in bringing our great applications which makes life very easy but as far as Gmail on BlackBerry BIS is concerned, it is still behind Yahoo email on BIS. Wireless email reconciliation works great for Yahoo BIS than Gmail. It could be because Yahoo primarily works on IMAP and Gmail was different when first introduced in 2004.
Well, Google is bringing more power to BlackBerry BES users in August and hopefully it will roll out more features for regular consumers on BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) emails.
