Gmail works pretty well on mobile devices already, but Google just announced a Java client application for mobile (Official Google Blog: Gmail mobile client is live) that runs on hundreds of devices. I visited the download page on my phone and it automatically detected that I was connecting via an HTC 2125 and supplied me with the correct Java “midlet” for my device.

It seems to work great, once I turned off the itsy-bitsy text-size option, although I’m not sure I really need it, since – as I said – the regular Gmail website already adapts itself pretty well to my device. Cool wow factor, though.
