Apparently, Google have decided it's a good idea for businesses to outsource email to them. APC Magazine isn't sure this is necessarily a good idea.

Unlike the individually accessible Google Apps services, which are primarily supported through advertising, ISPs will have to pay for the service. Google is being rather coy about the pricing, merely inviting ISPs and other interested parties to apply and learn more, but does suggest in its product information page that the service will be offered "affordably".

Secondly, while Google talks up the potential for ISPs to customise the service, that might not always be good for end users.
I'm waiting for the news of the first company to take Google up on this one.
