Almost a year ago, Google introduced Google Sync. This allowed for a wireless reconciliation of your BlackBerry and Google calendars. Like many other Google/Berry users, I’ve found this to be an essential BlackBerry application. This, combined with the awesome IMAP capabilities on Gmail, means that I can sync most of my Google suite with my Berry. Except, of course, for contacts. We knew this day was coming, and it’s finally here. You can now sync your Google contacts with your BlackBerry. Freaking. Awesome. Ronen puts this in terms that get me excited: “They are getting closer and closer to a free BES-like service every day.” That would be quite cool for us BIS users, especially those that use Google for our basic services. You can grab Google Sync at http://m.google.com/sync. The version is 0.5.0, if you’re interested. In the coming weeks, we’re going to go over a few hacks you can use along with this new sync. So stay tuned.
