Google today launched a new application that provides a faster, easier way to access Gmail accounts. The Java application allows users to read their Gmail in an interface similar to the desktop experience. It also provides many of the same options as the desktop client. It is being launched on Sprint, however any user with a Java enabled phone should be able to download the application directly from Google. Gmail's WAP site is also still available for users who cannot or do not wish to run Java applications.

Youtube is worthless since Google bought it

Youtube is where I would spend a considerable amount of my free time. Whether it was music videos, adult swim cartoons that I had missed, Daily show clips, or Keith Olbermann's commentary, I was thouroughly entertained. Since Google, an public stock company, bought it out, copyright infringements came about. Most TV show clips have been removed, a lot of news casts are taken off, and many music videos have been taken off.

This is GREAT!

I just downloaded it, and it is so much faster and easier to use than the way I used to (through Opera).

Next step: Let it run in the background, and notify you of new e-mail (like the Gmail Notifier does...checking however often you choose).
I agree it would be great to have a phone that ran java apps, ugg
I cant find the program. I can access it through the web on my java phone, but isnt there supposed to be an actual java program I can download??
I have Cingular w/ a V557 and it works great. I can view most attachments now (at least the text). Seems to be as easy to use as the mobile Google Maps interface.
I just download this to my t-mobile blackberry pearl. Its working perfect..............Yes baby
