Google has given their mobile synchronization a little more gusto by adding the ability to remotely wipe all data from your Windows phone, lock idle devices, and password access for each phone. These improvements are only for the Google Apps Premier and Educational customers.  So those of us who use Google Sync won't be able to enjoy these features.

Google may very well be setting the stage for businesses to choose Google Apps over the more costly Microsoft Exchange. Google has even set up a costs savings calculator on the Google Apps website.  The administrative features are also available for those using iPhones and Nokia E series phones.
