    GMail is now available as a Java program for your phone. It gives GMail a different look and feel than the traditional mobile GMail. Here is the link to download the actual program. Access this link from your mobile phone.

    gmail.com/app

    Hope you like it...

    GMail now a Java Program

    Email On-the-Go Now Even Easier -- Google Launches New Mobile Application for Speedier Access to Gmail



    Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) today announced the release of an innovative new mobile client, Gmail for mobile devices. This freely downloadable Java application delivers Gmail users the look and feel of Gmail through a fast, feature-rich interface that's optimized for handheld devices. With the release of this client, Google is taking one more step toward its goal of providing users with quick and easy access to the information they need, when they need it.

    Gmail users can already access their accounts through the browser on their mobile devices, but this application brings users the same great Gmail experience -- complete with search, conversation view, and automatic synchronization with the desktop version -- with the following new benefits:

    -- Up to five times faster access and use, thanks to automatic pre-fetching of messages
    -- Drastically reduced clicks and scrolling to access email
    -- Fewer keystrokes for reading, composing, or searching mail
    -- Attachments, including files and photos, viewable and automatically resized to fit the user's phone

    "Google's mobile products are designed to enable people to quickly and easily get the information they want on the go," said Deep Nishar, director of product management at Google. "We realize the role mobile phones play as a key driver for balancing online and offline worlds, and we're committed to developing products that help people stay connected when they're away from their computers. Gmail for mobile devices delivers on that commitment."

    Getting started is easy: users can go to gmail.com/app from their mobile browser to download the app. If users don't already have a Gmail account, they can sign up for an account via SMS by going to gmail.google.com and clicking on "sign up for Gmail."

    The application is available completely free of charge from Google (carrier mobile data charges may still apply). It is currently compatible with all J2ME-enabled phones in the U.S. and works with a variety of carrier service plans.

    In a separate release today, Google and Sprint (NYSE:S) announced that Gmail for mobile devices can also be easily downloaded directly from the Sprint PCS VisionSM or Sprint Power VisionSM home page. Google and Sprint worked closely to ensure that Gmail is only a few clicks away for Sprint customers.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I'm a newbie, but would anyone mind explaining why this should be used instead of using BIS? Or should I use both? TIA

    with BIS the email is sent to your device and once you remove it from your device it's gone
    with this app you can go in and read old mail, search for old mail etc
    since it's java, i'm assuming it'll work on other mobile device so that opens up Mobile GMail to non-blackberry users.

    Re: GMail now a Java Program

    I was actually going to post this info myself this morning, but someone beat me to it. I tried it, but I didn't see too much of a point since we can have GMail pushed down to us, and the computer will automatically thread it for us. Maybe folks without a Bb could use this more, I guess.

    Re: GMail now a Java Program

    I'm another one that doesn't see the "value" in this. You can already push you gmail to your blackberry and you can also go to your gmail account via your browser. What does this new program offer that I don't have already?

    I have always done the BIS push. I also like to store EVERYTHING in my gmail account. It gives me a central filing cabinet to access later. The problem was that when I needed to access some of that stored info from my BB I had to go through the browser to access it. It was possible but a little cumbersome. This new java inferface simplifies that process.
    Another instance where it'll be useful is for those of you that have BES and an IS team that doesn't want personal email being pushed to your device.

    Or if you would prefer to keep your personal and work email completely seperate. I know i have accidently responded or created new messages under my work account when they were of a personal nature. This approach keeps your gmail completely seperate from everything in BES or BIS

    So there are plenty of reasons to go with this approach if it works for you. This is one of the things that makes Blackberry such as strong product, there are options for everyone.

    Thanks for the explanation. Your last sentence belongs in a Blackberry marketing brochure. Well said.
