Gmail for mobile 2.0… much better

Today Google announced the release of Gmail for mobile 2.0. The updated application for J2ME-supported and BlackBerry phones is a vast improvement on previous versions. On the Nokia E71 it’s a joy to use… unlike previous editions that have been somewhat clunky and slow. It seems Google has realised that their previous attempts were ‘a bit rubbish’ to say the least. On the Google Mobile blog, an engineer states,

“Overall performance improvement: You should experience significant raw speed improvement, smoother scrolling, and no freezing.”

Gmail for mobile on E71Apart from re-engineering the entire application to improve reliability and performance, the developers at Google have also added a host of new features. This includes the ability to manage multiple accounts, multiple email drafts, powerful shortcut keys and basic offline support. The offline support makes it possible to read your most recent emails offline and write emails when your don’t have wireless coverage, emails will then be sent automatically once back in an area with coverage.

Gmail for mobile 2.0 is available in over 35 languages, direct your mobile browser to m.google.com/mail for the download.
