Gmail for your Mobile Phone

Where is it?

I tried accessing Gmail mobile last Saturday. That day, the Gmail mobile sign-up page auto-detected my location and displayed “Philippines”. I noticed a handful of other countries in the sign-up page drop-down list. There were only around a dozen countries in the list. I was pleased to see Google had put the Philippines in their shortlist of countries for this initial offering.

The sign-up page asked for my mobile phone number and asked me to input a word-verification field. The acknowledgement page said I would receive an activation code via my mobile phone. But it didn’t arrive. I wonder where it wandered off.

One more thing, there was a message offering an opt-in that will allow users to avail of Google services for mobile phones. Man, Gmail is pouring out of our ears!

Yesterday (and today) I see that Gmail Mobile sign-ups is now limited to United States mobile phones only. Hermps.

What’s up with Google? Releasing a service but not ensuring a good rollout? Excited pa naman sana ako. Bitin tuloy…
