Gmail for Nokia N96

Gmail for Nokia N96Being a Gmail user I have always wanted to have my mails on my phone. Using the built in mail applications was not enough. Following this idea Google has released a mobile java based freeware application for S60 based mobile phones including the new Nokia N96 I am currently using.

Gmail for S60 is a mobile application that you install on your phone which enables you to access your Gmail account instantly from your Nokia S60 mobile phone.

To get Gmail mobile you will have to go to and download the installation file on your mobile phone. Open your Nokia N96 mobile browser and navigate to the address. After downloading the installation file on your Nokia N96 or other Nokia Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phone install it on your phone memory or internal storage.

After that go to Applications and you will find the Gmail icon there. I must say the icon looks a bit crappy compared to the other icons in your phone but it is not the looks that do the job. However Google could fix this in some of the next releases of Gmail for mobile.

After installing it on the Nokia N96 we made a few screenshots of the Gmail mobile application. For privacy reasons the text of the mails is blurred.

The first screenshots shows the loading screen after the application loads you will be shown the login form.

Reading the emails is pretty easy and the interface is just like the one you are used to see on the Gmail webmail page. The application also allows you to Reply to mails or compose a new email.

After using this app for a few days I must say that it is a must have application for your Nokia N96 mobile phone especially if you have a Gmail account.

I don't think there will be an update for attachments soon... they update the java app very rarely.

Зачастую люди разыскивают корпорации, что предоставляют такую помощь как: [url=]аренда микроавтобусов[/url]. И действительно, пасажирские перевозки по украине стали весьма частыми среди населения, потому что это видимо быстро.
