Google Apps Connector For BlackBerry Enterprise Server Coming August 2009

has spotted what originally had shown a release date of July on the Google Apps page, is now reflecting a change to August for launch of the Google apps connector for Enterprise servers. Other then the change of ETA for launch all other information has stayed the same for the up and coming application. For those unfamiliar with what exactly this application is going to offer those on BES and Google apps users, here ia break down of features for you all again:
- Messages sent to your Gmail inbox are pushed to your BlackBerry within 60 seconds.
- Emails read/deleted on your BlackBerry are marked as read/deleted in Gmail, and vice-versa.
- Synchronize BlackBerry folders with labels in Gmail.
- Search for email addresses and phone numbers of other users on your company domain.
- View your Google Calendar schedule on your native BlackBerry application, with one-way synchronization from Google Calendar to your BlackBerry device.
- Contacts in Gmail are automatically synchronized with your BlackBerry address book.
This will be a great application when it launches. Sadly, it is not a consumer product even though some of the features included should really already be working with Gmail, but sadly do not. I really wish a BES was not required for some of this integration to work, but I have hopes that Google will enable some of this within Gmail for the consumer audience.
