If anyone uses gMail as their main email account and needs to access it on the go their new J2EE mobile client works very well.

I am on Vodafone pre-pay with a Nokia phone and it works extremely well although I did have to make a setting change to allow the application to access outside Vodafones WAP space etc. Don't ask me what I changed as I can't work it out now.
Anyway, being able to access your gMail in a very gMail style application rather than using the horrible WAPsite for gMail when you're laying on some NZ beach can be very useful!

Just enter google.com in your wap brower and you can download the app and Google Maps as well (very cool but just be aware of the amount of data it uses!)

Just watch your WAP data charges at 5 cents/kb, gets espensive.

I dont know about anyone else, but when I've been using the gmail client i'm using up about 15K to check my inbox and to read it a mail is about another 10k. It does add up but I only use it quite infrequently when i want to check an email quickly to grab a number or name or something like that. That adds up to about 30c I think..

Does anyone else have any reports on how much data they use per session on gmail?
