FYI: From the Rumor Mill:

RIM's Asia/Pacific region got this BIS 3.2 update this past weekend. I know that already.

The usual schedule for BIS upgrades from RIM is that the AP region gets it first.
A week or two later, the Europe/Africa/MiddleEast gets the update and a week or two following that, the Americas will get the update.

So, on my calendar, roughly, that would mean North America would get the update either October 10 or 17th, and when we hear that Europe has gotten the update we can pin that down more firmly.

Plus, RIM might put out to its top tier tech support customers the routine outage scheduled for XX dates, which will confirm it.

Can't wait for the OTA Calendar sync!

Then all I need is Memo pad and tasks sync then I'm good.
(but I doubt it will get further then this)

I just logged into my BIS account on website and see there is calendar option.. so I had to turn on calendar in Gmail and get it set up.

It looks good to have Two-way synchronization of Google calendar. I did tested it on my Blackberry when added Google calendar events and it did send immediately to Gmail Calendar and also added different events on Gmail Calendar on computer and it send to Blackberry Calendar was quick.

Good to hear!

Did you have issue with duplicate entries or any issues with it?

Currently no duplicate entries or any issues with it, since I'm using Gmail Calendar for the first time. (I guess it would be too early to say if there's issues as I do have Facebook and blackberry calendar as well)

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:37 AM.
