Google Apps, Including Gmail, No Longer Free For Small Businesses

$50 a year per user


Previously, Google Apps, a web-based attempt to challenge to Microsoft Office's dominance of everyday enterprise tasks such as word processing and spreadsheet editing, was free of charge to firms with 10 or fewer staff.

Google said that by charging $50 per user per year, £33 in Britain, it would be able to provide better support to businesses.
