The news is all over the place, Google Launches Gmail, Free Email Service. But many forums say its a big April Fools day hoax.
We're currently only offering Gmail as part of a preview release and limited test. We don't have details on when Gmail will be made more widely available, as that depends in part on the results of the test.
