Google's free email service, Gmail has been widely accessible via mobile devices for some time, but the company just made it a whole lot easier (and easier on the eyes) to do so with the launch of a downloadable Java app. Google claims the app is compatible with more than 300 mobile phones, but only those in the U.S., apparently. To download the app, point your mobile browser to www.gmail.com/app. Users will no longer have to suffer through typing in the entire site address anymore, now with just one-click they can log-in to their gmail accounts. Even though I am the proud new owner of a smartphone, this "prosumer" plans to do just that.
