Gmail on you mobile

Nokia N80

First, if you don’t use gmail you should really consider starting. It’s the best web based mail this planet has seen so far. On my computer at home I don’t use anything else. I didn’t even bother to install Outlook or anything similar the last time I cleaned up the box.

If you need an invite send me an email to eirikso at gmail dot com. The 50 first will get one. Or, simply google “gmail invite”…

So, you’re using gmail and you have a Symbian phone. Like the Nokia N80 or N73 one of the 300 supported java enabeled phones. And you want a nice interface for your gmail account. Then simply point the browser in your phone to “” and install.

A very nice application to read your gmail on the phone. Only one (big) disappointment so far: you can’t attach anything when you send mails from this client. This is something that Google needs to fix!

A quick note: the phone in the picture is a Nokia N80. The picture itself is taken with my Nokia N73. Click the image to see the high resolution version.

    And too bad it really messes up in terms of interface if you try to use it on a Pocket PC (at least the qtec 2020i with the MIDlet Manager from Tao Group)

    Pushing an input field (to, subject, mail text) opens it up as a new window with just an empty field (and no indication of what it is), then you have to reselect it, enable the onscreen keyboard, enter the text – possibly hide the keyboard to access the menu to select send

    Blame Microsoft or blame Google – for now I’ll stick to the (or I suppose I could just add another pop account for it and stop complaining ;D)

  2. Havard, Eirikso…

    I had the same problem, a simple no connection found…

    The solution is deceptively simple. On your PC in the settings of Gmail, change the language to English US and it should work!

    I cannot download gmail Browser on my Nokia N73. It shows the starting of installation and finally ends up with message as “invalid jar file”. Pls let me know any alternative for retriving that browser

  5. Strange. It worked fine on my N73. Now I have a N95 and it works there as well. I am afraid I don’t know what to do to make it work on your N73. :-(

  7. I am afraid you’ll have to rely on some of my readers, or check any of the forums discussing these issues out there. I had no problem on my N73 and use it fine on my N95 now…

    Thanks to Janos for his post re changing the language to English US. My N80 is now picking up gmail beautifully. (Of course, being an englishman i get slightly rattled when English US takes over the world, but I guess I’ll have to live with it?!).
