We’re a little late on this update but a few days ago Google updated the Google Apps Connector for BES and it now supports BES Express (the free version of BES). It would be interesting to see how many organizations downloaded BES Express, and just how many unsupported people are now on BES with the new service. The new version of Google Apps Connector features the following changes:

  • Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.2.
  • Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express.
  • Support for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 SP2.
  • Improved Dynamic GAL synchronization.
  • Improvements to some calendar synchronization components to provide enhanced robustness and accuracy.
