w00t! on Gmail Mobile

Our Blackberry Hacks author Dave Mabe dropped me a line mentioning the appearance of Gmail Mobile just before the holidays. While I’m only now pointing at his writeup, I’ve been using Gmail Mobile from my Blackberry for the past two weeks to keep in touch with friends and family (I use Gmail only for my personal correspondence). While hitting a spot just beneath the capabilities of the Blackberry’s reasonable browser, it’s a cut above trying to use the traditional Gmail interface on such a small screen.

And while I’m pointing out Dave’s article, I can’t but mention how amazingly useful Blackberry Hacks was, even for someone who thinks they truly know their Blackberry. I’m now a mobile chatting, ssh’ing, IRC’ing, RSS-reading fool.

  • It felt like something from under the tree to find Gmail mobile working that great on my Sony K600i. Very nice.
