Google's recent updates to GMail Mobile are making it easier and faster to check your GMail from your cell phone. The app (which can be downloaded from Google for free) pre-fetches your e-mail automatically and lets you view attachments like PDFs, images, and Word files from your cell phone. The folks at MobileCrunch gave it a whirl and were mostly impressed by the app's speed. Sprint already has plans for pre-installing the app on some of its new phones, otherwise you'll need a Java-enabled phone to run the app.

YEAY GOOGLE!!

MY CARRIER: Sprint

MY PHONE: LG "FUSIC

DOWLOADING THE APP:

Went to the address http://gmail.com/app on my Fusic handset. The actual application took approximately 5 seconds to download.

The applet recognized what type of phone I have and was automatically saved in the "email/im" folder on my phone.

FUNCTIONALITY

Impressive, easy to use. The emails are actually legible on the small screen! The program updates quickly and the menu is rather efficient.

EASY TO ACCESS

Once saved to your phone just open the java file to access.

**obviously charges will apply for the data used. IF you do not have a data plan yet (which would be surprising for most people reading this blog) you should get one before you go nuts!
