Gmail for mobile 2.0

Google released the latest version of Gmail for mobile and renamed it as Gmail for mobile 2.0 for J2ME-supported and BlackBerry phones, the latest version definitely has quite a lot of improvements and is much more faster than then earlier one.

The focus in the second iteration was to produce a faster and more reliable experience for users. The online application now offers faster performance and smoother scrolling, with no freezing. Users with multiple Gmail accounts also can now switch between them without using different applications to access messages.

Gmail for Mobile 2.0 offers the option to save multiple e-mail drafts in the phone and adds shortcut keys that enable users of phones equipped with QWERTY keyboards to press 'z' to undo, 'k' to go to a newer conversation, and 'j' to go to an older conversation.

As an added bonus, for those who won't find themselves in signal range, the updated Gmail for Mobile boasts offline support, and lets users compose and read e-mail when there is no signal. All outgoing messages written when a user is offline are saved in the outbox and sent automatically when coverage is restored.
