Gmail Mobile: Google’s freemail for cellphones

GuyPardon Guy Pardon Profile: GuyPardon

Google has done it again. As useful as millions have found Gmail freemail to be, it’s even better now: users can now access Gmail through their mobile phones, as described by this press release. Simply point your phone’s Web browser to gmail.com/app on a Java-enabled mobile phone and download the application. It’s quite fast, with pre-loaded messages, easy scrolling, reduced but useful keystrokes for reading, composing and searching and even features attachment support that automatically resizes to the phone. You’ll need to check the requirements for Gmail Mobile first, crucially J2ME, but if you’re a Gmail user, this is pretty cool.

    Hi khonnsat. You're right -- it's "just" gmail -- but Google did update it for mobile use. I find I use my gmail account on-the-go now in ways I never would have dreamed of doing with other freemail accounts on 2G connections. I have friends who hadn't discovered the mobile version of the application; thus the discovery. :)
