Default New "Google Services" - Including new GMAIL app

Please Login to Remove!

Go to: www.mobile.google.com from your internet or blackberry browser.

Allows you to download an "application" that adds four icons to your blackberry ribbon: gmail, google search, google news, and google maps. The first three are merely links to webpages and the maps basically just opens google maps (version 1.3.2). Also adds an option to the settings/options menu that allows you to control which icons appear on the home screen.

I installed it and then uninstalled it - you get basically the same functionality from downloading google maps (Google Maps) and then adding bookmarks for the other three. However, you might like it.

Not bad. Can open jpgs but not mp3s. Doesn't compare at all to getting gmail through BIS.

Deleted.

Everyone

Google just dropped a gmail client for java enabled mobile phones. I just installed it and it is super fast. Im talking its as fast as the blackberry mail client. The best thing with it is that you get 2 way synch with your mail.

Head over to Google Mobile for details.

To install it OTA head to Gmail from your device.

I just want to know if the gmail app will let me know when I have mail so I can maybe take my gmail account out of BIS.

Seems like the two-way reconciliation is delayed as well... I deleted it from the BB App and it doesn't go away in the website... but when i delete it from BB email, it deletes it a few minutes later...

After I installed their "suite" the icon took me to gmail via the bb browser. I logged in then exited the browser, clicked the gmail icon again then I was presented with the option to download the gmail client.

After the install I had a new gmail icon and when I clicked it I got a java error about cod something and sibling something.

I'm going to delete and start over.

******
Reinstalled and everything is working now.

just installed it and it looks great.. love it.. I wish they could give access to calendar also as part of this interface so that I can update my google calendar on the desktop and then I can start using that as my one calendar.
