Sprint, Google team brings e-mail to mobiles

Sprint Nextel is making Google's Gmail application available to its wireless customers.

Sprint is the first wireless service provider to make the popular Google mail application available, in a new version designed for easy access and viewing on mobile devices.

The application can be accessed two ways: Customers can download a Java application to their device, or access Gmail through a wireless application protocol site.

Gmail is available to wireless data customers with Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint Power Vision for no additional fee.

Sprint says the Gmail application is accessible by most customers whose mobile devices are Java-based. The wireless service provider says in coming weeks it will support a Gmail version that is accessible by mobile users whose devices are not Java based.
