Going Mobile With Google

Via MobileCrunch we’ve got news that Google have launched a great version of Gmail for java based mobile phones, allowing you all of the common features you would expect from the online version as well (reporting spam, flagging conversations etc.). You can still access Gmail via your phone’s browser directly but this new standalone application should go a long way towards speeding up everything, Mike Arrington saying it was “the best email experience outside of a Blackberry I’ve ever had on a mobile device.” Not bad going there.

Check the demo here or point your mobile browser to http://gmail.com/app to get cracking…

    I too have downloaded new Gmail app and installed with a few problems that I solved. I am using it for 8 days and I can tell you that I love it. But I don’t think I will use it for log because I can’t view my other accounts (Hotmail, Yahoo mail). For that I use Movamail http://movamail.com/ because it supports POP, IMAP and Webmail on all of my accounts.

    Good to know, good to know. I haven’t actually tested the Gmail app myself but movamail looks and works quite nicely on my mobile.
