    Google Launches Gmail for BlackBerry Version 2.0

    Advertisement




    Today, Google introduces Gmail for mobile version 2.0 for BlackBerry phones. Their focus for this version was to make the experience faster and more reliable. Google rearchitected the entire client to push all the processing to the background, greatly improve the client-side caching scheme and optimize every bottleneck piece of code they came across:
    • Overall performance improvement: You should experience significant raw speed improvement, smoother scrolling, and no freezing.
    • Multiple accounts management: If you have both a Gmail and Google Apps email account, you can easily switch between them quickly. You will no longer have to use two different mobile apps to access personal and work emails.
    • Multiple mobile email drafts: You can save multiple email drafts in your mobile phone, so that you can pick and choose what you would like to send later.
    • Powerful shortcut keys: If you have a QWERTY phone, you can use shortcut keys. Hit 'z' to undo, 'k' to go to a newer conversation, and 'j' to go to an older conversation. See Menu/Help in the app for more shortcuts.
    • Basic offline support: Can't get a signal? Not a problem. You can compose and read your most recent emails even when there is no signal. Also, any outgoing messages will be saved in the outbox on your phone and sent automatically when you're back in coverage.
    Also, Gmail for mobile 2.0 is available in over 35 languages now.

    Go to m.google.com/mail in your BlackBerry browser to download the new Gmail for mobile for your phone.

    odd that they are advertising it just now, i think 2.0 has been out for quite a while... maybe this is the equivalent of a change log.

    I think it was a beta named 1.6 or 1.7 I don't have my BB with me right now, but I don't remember it being called 2.0 before. I could be wrong tho.

    I find the mobile drafts a bit underwhelming. While I am overjoyed to have a 'drafts' function at all, I'd like my mobile drafts to show up in my drafts folder on my phone as well. Also, it'd be great if it was tagged 'MOBILE DRAFT.' Just a thought....

    I'm on a AT&T BB 8310, and my gMail Mobile has been at 2.0.5 and now a 2.0.6 update is available. Downloading now.
