Google Sync for BlackBerry updated with Android-like Contacts feature

Google has generously given BlackBerry users a feature for Sync that first appeared on the Android T-Mobile G1. What’s that? On-device contact synchronization with G-mail’s address book, and vice versa, of course.

The T-Mobile G1 has a nifty address book feature that syncs automagically with any user’s Gmail account address book. This way, even if you lose your phone or upgrade, your contacts will always be on hand because they’re stored on your personal Gmail account to which you sync your device. Now, BlackBerry users can benefit from the exact same feature. And as always, it’s all for free.

The Google Sync for BlackBerry update can still be accessed via the same old link, which is http://mobile.google.com/sync, and instructions for different methods are available there. And don’t forget to thank Google for this wonderful service!
