Google Apps Connector integrates the Google Apps messaging suite with BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, giving mobile users the ability to use built-in BlackBerry applications to access their Google Apps email, calendar, and contacts. Administrators use the same BlackBerry tools they already know for securing and managing BlackBerry devices.
