Gmail on the Pocket PC
The new gmail "basic mode" works on the Pocket PC. The GUI is a bit cramped on my iPaq 4150 but it looks better on the latest Pocket PCs that work in landscape mode. The login is via https so it is safer than 3rd party services like http://gmail.wiggster.com/ that post the user name and password in clear text.
There are some features that don't work on the Pocket PC web interface:
- Sending attachments (limitation of Pocket Explorer)
- Creating filters
- Spell checker
- Java Script features like auto complete
Otherwise it works like a charm. You can also try the basic GUI in a web browser by clicking the "basic HTML" link at the end of the page:
The only thing missing now is a gmail notifier for the Pocket PC that integrates on the Today screen.
Let me know, by commenting on this post or using the contact form, if you want a gmail account as I have several invitations. You can also check out the isnoop.net gmail spooler which has an unbelievable 450.702 invitations waiting to be shared at the time of writing.
