GMail and Google Maps on your phone !

Google’s mobile maps and GMail applicationsGoogle have a couple of J2ME applications for your phone that are really cool.

The first gives you access to your GMail account. It’s really easy to use. Just browse to with your phone to download it.

The second gives you access to Google Maps. The travel directions are great (although it can be a little messy to type in addresses on your phone). In certain parts of the world it will even show the heavy traffic reports overlaid on the maps ! Point your phone at to download it.

Remember to make sure you have some kind of data plan for your phone otherwise it will be very expensive to use these applications.
