Google Mobile Updater for Blackberry

Google Mobile Updater. What could that be? After all, Google doesn't have too many mobile apps. Maybe there's some connection with the desktop updater included in Google Pack. Let's see.

"Google Mobile Updater is a free download, currently only for BlackBerry users, that lets you install and update Google Mobile services. Google Mobile Updater will keep you notified of new Google Mobile services as well as updates to installed applications. This way, you can be sure to have the most current version of your favorite Google Mobile applications when you are on the go." (Google Support)

Apparently, to get one you need to go to and click on "Get Google's mobile products in a single download". But what Google products? Search, Maps, Gmail, News, Picasa, and Reader.

While Gmail and Maps are already available as mobile apps for most phones, it's not clear what you can expect from the rest of the services and if they're more than simple links to Google's mobile sites. So if you have a Blackberry and you want to finish this post, please do.
