You need to firstly export your org mode files to iCal format.

For me thats (in an org file) C-c C-e (org-export) and then selecting
"c" to export to an ical file.

This creates (it would be nice to have a variable) ~/org.ics

What I then do is regularly move to my my web server using scp and cron
but you can do that however you like if you have your own web
server. Else I believe there are other sites which allow you to host
iCal files.

Then in Google, go to calendar and in the bottom left you see which
calendars are imported to your main Google calendar. Add has an option
to add by url. Voila!

On my blackberry I then run gsync  and using the rather nice iBerry
Today theme I see a preview of messages and relevant iCal entries on the

With latest git version export to iCal is broken for me but I believe
Carsten is addressing it.
