Google's Email, Gmail, Is Now Open To Public

gmail-logo020807.gifLike I reported at Search Engine Land yesterday, Gmail Now Public Beta, Open To All. That is right, you no longer need an invite to get a Gmail account. Which rocks, people can stop leaving me comments for a Gmail invite (211 comments to be exact). So go to Gmail and sign up without an invite.

Right, it won't cost you $250 for an invite like it once went for on eBay. Oh, it is also not a hoax when it launched on April 1, 2004 (April Fools Day), it was real and no hoax.

If you look at GMail, it's not open to the public yet. It's only for your mobile phone. You still need an invite for regular browser accessed GMail. Hey, shoot me an email, I'll invite you for FREE!

OK, my bad, It looked as though it was mobile phone access only - sorry! Receiving your invitation code via cell phone is a way for them to combat SPAM. It is an actual invitation to set up a real GMail account. I tested it but didn't sign up since I already have 6 GMail accounts. Sorry about my previous post.
