Pretty impressive news, Gmail and the other Google Apps are finally coming out of Beta. These services have been around for a few years and are very widely used.
“The reason the products were kept in beta for so long was because we wanted people to know that we were constantly innovating the products, not because they were not ready for enterprise use,” he said. “Each product team established a criteria for each app covering usability, readiness and more. Now they are ready to be brought out of beta.” – Dave Armstrong, head of marketing EMEA, Google Enterprise
