How To Turn a BlackBerry into a Google Phone
The biggest news in the smartphone business last fall was the launch of Google's new mobile operating system, Android. There's a lot to like in this new platform, but if you use your smartphone for business, odds are Android isn't for you.
This is because it lacks support for the email systems used by most mid-sized to large companies -- Exchange ActiveSync and BlackBerry Server.
However, if you're a BlackBerry user, you can get many of Android's consumer-friendly features without giving up the business features you need.
Better yet, the software to do this is all free and easily available.
But there's something to be aware of. While there's no cost for any of the software, it will require wirelessly exchanging data over the network. Carriers charge for this sort of thing, so be sure your wireless contract includes data service. If it doesn't you will be hit with a nasty bill at the end of the month.

bahhh we have been running those apps on our berries for a while now...and to think we would want to turn our berries into google phones....bahhhh
but you are looking nice tonight lava
You know; it never sees to amaze me how an outstanding device the Blacberry phones are.
Everday I learn something new that a Blackberry device can do. A majority of Blackbery users have no idea how powerful and multifunctional the device is.
Keep it up RIM. Make the devices better but don't take away its ability to change.
Gotta love Blackberries.

Why thank you cat
I just tried Google Sync today. It messed with some stuff and changed some names around.. (ie. middle/last) I won't use it anymore, but I told my friend about it. He doesn't sync with his computer EVER, but he uses Gmail.
Google Sync is perfect for him, but not for me.
The title of the thread sounds …yucky. I do like google though. They're a great company. The have a location in detroit too.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Great article but before the G1, wasn't this stuff already available? I had Google maps long ago and I thought sync as well. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Google Sync is pure evil!!

I have two very rare photographs. One is a picture of Houdini locking his keys in his car........
I'll never use Google sync again.
