ArcGIS online now has an ArcPad Package type for use by organizations. You can load two different types of package: Templates and Projects.
Upload and download projects (ie, a zip folder containing an apm and any of the following: shapefiles, axf's, rasters) to and from ArcGIS Online instead of your local file system to better serve your remote team members.
Upload your current templates and use ArcGIS Online as your content management system for distribution to field workers. For more information on templates, refer to the help at http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcpad/10.0/help/index.html#/What_are_Quick_Project_Templates/00s1000000w3000000/

we will continue blogging on both sites for a little while, but I urge you to subscribe to http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/category/mobile/ for future news.
