Gmail Extend an Open Invite to All

Posted by @ 9:40 pm

Google have finally announced that Gmail is open to all! No longer do you have to wait for an invitation – simply go in and create your own account!

Using a viral idea, similar to that started by Hotmail, Gmail has spread, simply as members ‘invite a friend’. Hotmail has long been the forerunner in free web based email, with few direct competitors, but now Google look set to give them a good race.

Maybe a little slow off the mark, Google are compensating with some excellent add-ons for Gmail members. Gmail comes with the latest in IM and ‘talk’ functions – Google Talk and Gmail mobile. Users can view new messages directly in their personalized Google homepage or use Google Desktop to view Gmail messages, even when offline!
Speak no English – Gmail is available in 40 different languages! For those traveling there is a vacation auto-responder and account holders can send up to 10 MB of photos – start sending your happy snaps back from overseas!

If you don’t already have an account then head over and sign up. In all honesty, I am a Hotmail girl through and through, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a Gmail account too!
