Research in Motion and Google are currently testing integration between Google Apps and BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Google Apps Connector for BES will allow administrators to manage users and apply policies the same way the would for Exchange users while syncing email, contact, and calendar data with Google Apps.
Google Apps Connector for BES offers:
- Gmail with push support, offline access, read/delete sync, spam filtering, and support for archiving/stars right.
- One-way sync (GCal > BlackBerry) with Google Calendar, with support for recurring meetings and meeting notification alerts.
- Two-way sync for contacts.
Google App Connector for BES is currently being beta tested with select companies and universities and will be freely available to Premier/Education customers in July.
