Google’s Gmail goes mobile

Google today has added portability to their free online email system. Gmail Mobile will give users access to their Gmail account from a web-enabled mobile phone. When accessing http://m.gmail.com from your handset, it automatically optimizes the interface based on your device. You can even view photos, documents, reply to phone numbers while keeping everything synchronized to your mobile and standard web Gmail account.

Google has also added several new features to enhance your Gmail experience, including:

• Quick links that identify addresses and package tracking numbers in emails and displays them to the right of users’ Inbox so they can more easily access maps, directions, or tracking information with a single click.
• Gmail Web Clips, which appear at the top of the Gmail inbox and enable users to read Google News, a friend’s blog, or any RSS or Atom feed from their Gmail account.
• Anti-virus protection that automatically scans messages with attachments.
• The ability to view attachments in HTML instead of downloading to the desktop or mobile phone.
• A vacation auto-responder, which enables users to automatically notify people when they’re away from email or unable to respond.
• The option to create contact groups, one of the most highly-requested Gmail features.

The Gmail mobile service works on most web-enabled phones, it is free, however data rates may apply when accessing the web.
