SERVICE: Google launches Gmail SMS - brings E-Mails to African Mobile Phones
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:53 CET under 01 - General News

As Google Africa today announced on its Africa blog, Google created and just launched "Gmail SMS". E-Mail has become an important part of everyday life, doesn't matter if it is in the first world or emerging markets, doesn't matter if it is used for personal or business communication and as Google wrote, "there's so much you do with it: apply for a job, make an inquiry, get notifications from your social network, receive photos or an invitation that makes you smile, and just communicate back and forth with your friends".
