well, gmail just turned up to support mobile.
Everybody knew that some day, and hopefully earlier than later, these projects would become redundant.
It does sound like the beginning of the end. But for now, it's still not the end. :-)
No! I have just recently discovered this site and I'm intending to use it as an alternative method of accessing G-Mail.
There is currently an intractable technical problem between some Window Mobile 5 phone, T-Mobile's GPRS network, and Google (all Google site).
They don't work together! This may actually change from handset to handset, but it still leaves the issue that many people (myself included) simply can't access Google or G-Mail from a GPRS connection.
Having an alternative pathway is invaluable. I hope my thoughts and opionins are of value here; and thanks for GMail Mobile.
