For those of you who use Google’s Gmail, you can now access it on your cell phone, according to The Register: The small screen support for the popular e-mail account means that users can access their Gmail account from their mobile phone, using the URL http://m.gmail.com.
According to Google, the page will automatically optimise its interface for whatever phone you are using, adjusting it depending on the size of your mobile phone screen. The service also allows users to open attachments such as photos, Microsoft Word documents and PDF files.
No word on if you can use this with a PDA and wireless internet access.
In conjuction with that, if you are curious how email can be used in genealogy research, Renee, at Renee’s Genealogy Blog, posted an article, Using Email to Organize Your Research. It could be a little difficult with a small screen, but it’s an option.
