For all those who can’t enough of their daily Gmail fix, say hello to Gmail for Mobile v2.0 for J2ME-supported and BlackBerry devices.
The new version, available in more than 35 languages, is faster and more robust, and supports multiple account management between Gmail and Google Apps accounts. It has smoother scrolling and no ‘hanging’ screens.
It is now possible to save multiple drafts of messages, which can then be sent later as per your convenience. If your phone has or supports a QWERTY keyboard, you can use shortcuts like ‘z’ to undo, ‘k’ to go to a newer conversation, and ‘j’ to go to an older conversation.
One of the best features is that is supports offline usage, which means if you’re out of the network coverage area or if the signal strength is weak, you can still compose and read your emails. All outgoing messages get saved to your Outbox and are automatically sent once the signal is restored.
Not all phones will support this though, and you may need to confirm if your phone does. Check out and download the new Gmail for Mobile 2.0 at m.google.com/mail in your mobile browser.
