Google Apps Connector Plugs into BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Google Apps has been a way for businesses to use the Google Services you all know and love for, y’know, real work. Now they’re plugging into BlackBerry Enterprise Server, RIM’s back-end that handles companies’ BlackBerry data. Although e-mail is the main thing, Google Calendar and Contacts will also be synced to your work BlackBerry with this new Google Apps Connector.

On a related note, Google will also be releasing Google Maps as a BES install pack for those who want to roll it out internally. That’s a sweet option, since Google Maps for Mobile easily beats the built-in BlackBerry Maps application. Premier and Education Apps users should have Apps Connector available this July, so keep your eyes peeled for the upgrade.
