Exchange My Mail Launches Hosted BES for Google Apps!

Hosted-BES-Google-Apps-Connector We knew this was coming but Scott let me know that Exchange My Mail is offering Hosted BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Google Apps! That means you can get 90% of the BES experience with Google Apps.

The price is a bit high at $9.99/month with a $50 setup fee but this is the first service we have seen so maybe competition will drive it down. I am not sure if the price includes the $50 per email fee for Google Apps Premier but I hope it does. You will also definitely have to have a BES capable plan from your carrier since it will still require BES support.

Check out the full details at this link or read about the features below:

  • Push email delivery and send – Messages sent from and received in your Gmail inbox are automatically pushed to your BlackBerry device within 60 seconds, keeping both inboxes up-to-date.
  • Read/delete synchronization – Emails read or deleted on your BlackBerry device are marked as read or deleted in your Gmail inbox, and vice-versa.
  • Folder/label synchronization – Select folders on your BlackBerry device to synchronize with labels in your Gmail interface.
  • Global address lookup – Search for and access email addresses and phone numbers for other users on your company domain.
  • Calendar access – View your Google Calendar events and schedule from the native BlackBerry application, with one-way synchronization from your Google Calendar to BlackBerry device.
  • Contacts synchronization – Contacts in your BlackBerry address book and in your Gmail account are automatically synchronized. Information added to Gmail is pushed to your BlackBerry device within 5 minutes, and vice-versa.

  1. Why would someone use this?? With BIS you get the same options (well, the calendar options will be there soon!) And BIS is much cheaper!

  2. I think it is for those companies who switched to gmail/google apps.I would like to have it on my BB, but not through BES and not on this price!

  3. Yeah I thought it would be cheaper… Maybe like $50 a year… This turns out to be about $170. Compared to $216 for their Exchange BES plan with their 10% discount its a pretty crappy deal unless you are in love with Google Apps
