Update Google Mobile Products on your BlackBerry with One Click

Thursday, December 6, 2007 | 1:35 PM



If you find it hard to keep your BlackBerry up to date with Google's expanding mobile product suite, we hope we just made your life a little easier. The new Google Mobile Updater for BlackBerry makes it simple for you to stay informed and current by telling you when new products and updates are available for your phone and allowing you to install them with a single click. The Updater will even put an icon for each product on your BlackBerry's main menu, making it as easy as possible for you to get to your favorite Google mobile products.

Now you can easily get the latest Google mobile applications like Google Maps for Mobile with My Location (the magical blue circle on your map), and web applications like Picasa Web Albums and Google Docs -- all of which you can choose to install to your BlackBerry's main menu for easy access.

Google Mobile Updater is also the only way you can get the latest, fastest Google mobile search for BlackBerry. In under a second, you can start entering your query without waiting to load the Google home page. This saves you valuable time when you are trying to find the answer to that quiz question, the address of a nearby restaurant or the latest price of your favorite stock. You can assign a convenience key to make it even easier to access Google search.

To get Google Mobile Updater, visit mobile.google.com on your BlackBerry and click "Download all" under "Get all Google products in one go." From there, you can get the latest Google search application by selecting "Search" and then "Update." Note that right now, Google Mobile Updater and the new Google search experience are only available for BlackBerry devices in the U.S. In the future, whenever we launch new products or updates we will let you know by changing the Google Mobile Updater icon to have a green arrow, like this:

I have a blackberry and the download all option is not showing up on the page. I'm concerned that I'm showing up as coming from Canada since I use Verizon Wireless, even though I'm located in San Diego.

Hi from Spain!

I tried the mobile.google.com website and there is NO option to download all programs OR the google mobile updater.

Is there a direct link? If so, please send it to me: rafaelwv@gmail.com

I also cannot see the link to download the updater. I am also using Verizon in Baltimore and emulation mode is set to Blackberry. Using a Blackberry 8130 Pearl. Where is the link?!

Who cares about Blackberry? When are all those of us who don't have Blackberries going to get mobile access for our Aps accounts?

Daniel said...

This is just fantastic brilliant stuff! I love Google! I am using blackberry and maps and email from google is just the best what you can have. Google search is perfekct. Just esktop search on my pc have problems with my moved files from pc to external hardrive. But I believe they fix this bugs.
Viva Google!
I am going to buy some shares of this company ... ;)

Sounds great...now we just need something like this for all of us without Blackberry devices!

spencer said...

I just hope that picasa, docs, etc turn in to actual apps rather than shortcuts to the browser.

nelanka said...

You guys rock! Google's mobile apps make my blackberry all the more versatile and useful. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Why isn't the new google "sync" in the list?

Mikel said...

WE WANT YOUTUBE COMPATIBILITY for blackberry devices... pretty please.... RIM needs to get on it.

Ed said...

My Blackberry 8700 asked me today if I wanted to update to the latest Google apps ... after doing so, my blackberry constantly crashes and requires reseting, rendering it useless. Now what?

Gil Creque said...

Awesome job guys. Now just add Google Talk to the updater. ;-)

Daniel said...

Hi

I can't seem to find the "download all" link that takes me to the google mobile updater program. When I go to mobile.google.com on my blackberry it just lists the the individual google programs.

Any suggestions?

Bulent said...

I couldn't find the options described here iether, but the following link worked fine.

Google guys, you need to promote this better. It's great.

I love Google Apps on my BB 8800. I would suggest one improvement to the Gmail app - if it's possible it would be very nice to have it display new email the same way native BB email client does - in the upper left corner as a little envelope. If it did this, I would switch to the Gmail App instead of forwarding my Gmail to the Blackberry address.

akamu said...

I couldn't find the "Download all" link either... thanks for posting the direct download link. Downloaded fine now.

Now to set about troubleshooting the error I received when I first ran it:
"Error starting GoogleMobileUpdater: Class 'net.rim.device.api.system.CoverageInfo' not found. [OK]"

I have a 7250.

All, I think I figured out why the "Download All" option is not showing up for you. Within the "Options" tab of the Blackberry Browser you must change your emulation mode to "Blackberry". That is the only way mobile.google.com knows that you are on a Blackberry and will show you the "Download All" option. My emulation mode was set to Internet Explorer and switching it solved the problem.

Hope that helps!
