Yes. Google Apps still remains free, but now comes with new business-oriented features, conference room scheduling for Calendar, 10GB of inbox storage, extended business hours support and mobile access to your email on BlackBerry Devices.

Google Apps now comes in 3 ‘flavours’
Standard, Education and Enterprise. The first 2 still remain free. Google Apps Enterprise will cost you USD 50 per year and you get the additional features.
In terms of Standard package, I as a user of this service, get everything that I could ask for free. They have integrated Google Docs and Spreadsheets, in addition to customised service URLs (mail.mydomain.com), (calendar.mydomain.com), start page; which is great! I don’t need any of the ‘enterprise’ features, so all in all, as a user aka small business I am happy as a puppy 🙂
