Gmail Mobile for Java can no longer be downloaded. Take a look at the Gmail mobile web app instead.

Now you can enjoy the benefits of Gmail on your phone, through Gmail Mobile. The application provides a small, yet perfectly formed version of the mail client that replicates virtually all the functions of its bigger brother.

If you aren't using Gmail as your default webmail client then quite frankly, you're living in the past. The service manages to combine ease of use with a huge range of useful features to create probably the best email experience you'll find anywhere.

With Gmail Mobile, you can send and receive messages, search your email for keywords, report spam, organize your mail into folders, and even view your Google Talk chat history. One of the best things about Gmail Mobile, is that all of this can be done offline, meaning that if you don't have a flat-rate data plan, it's going to save you previous cash, as you only need to be connected when you're actually sending or receiving mail.

For the first time, version 2 of Gmail Mobile allows you to manage multiple Gmail accounts on your phone, and switching between them is a real breeze. I also liked the way you can now save multiple email drafts in Gmail Mobile.

In terms of its usability, Gmail Mobile is excellent. Thanks to fast scrolling and support for shortcut keys, getting around your mailbox is very straightforward, and you can even ramp up the font size if you're having trouble viewing text in the program. The only thing that takes away from Gmail Mobile's ease-of-use is the installation procedure, which is a little fiddly, as it all has to be done online.

That said, if you have a Google Mail account and you have a phone, you can't afford to ignore Gmail Mobile.
