So with Google Calendar and Gmail, you get push email and wireless calendar sync, two of the big advantages of BES.
Though I agree that a "personal" BES type of app would be ideal. But this is free and available now.
Yep, I do use the Google syncing apps that are out there, but its just too unreliable and too many hoops to jump through.. plus having to install another app just for syncing is just a pain.
