Google Mail indeed one of the most common and widely used web mail available on internet worldwide. This web mail has many features to be highlighted.
AUTO FORWARD is also one of the most unique features that Gmail offers to its user’s. This feature allows user to forward the mail received in the Gmail inbox to any other one e-mail address. Although this feature is available with other web mails as well but what distinguishes Google mail with others is that Google mail retains, in the inbox, the mail so forwarded automatically. And also doesn’t populate the sent items box with any mail so forwarded.
Whereas in other web mails, the mail so received is forwarded to new address and nothing is retained in the inbox as if no mail has been received in the inbox.

To activate this feature in Gmail just follow the following easy steps:
1. Click on the “Settings” on upper right side of the inbox page of Gmail.

Google is working to produce its own brand mobile phone!!!

Google is working to produce its own brand mobile phone!!! Reports from various sources suggest that the web giant (Google) is developing a series of “GPhones”, centered on its mobile services, such as search, e-mail and maps which would enable a cell user to utilize the full potential of the networks.

Google, In a statement, said it was working with carriers, phone makers and content providers to “bring its services to users everywhere”. It also said that “What our users and partners are telling us is that they want Google search and Google applications on mobile, and we are working hard every day to deliver that.”
Google has partnered with Apple to produce services, such as e-mail and maps, for its iPhone handset. Eric Schmidt, Google’s chief executive, said recently that more Google services for the iPhone would be rolled out.
Reports have circulated since last year that Google was working with mobile phone manufacturers to produce a handset. The Wall Street Journal on Thursday said Google had invested “hundreds of millions of dollars” in the project and was involved in discussions with T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless. The newspaper said the company was seeking to grab a bigger slice of the increasingly important mobile phone advertising market. Market research firm eMarketer told the paper that the mobile ad industry would be worth $14bn (£7bn) by 2011.
Last month, Google said it was interested in bidding for wireless spectrum licenses in the US, which could be the first step towards running its own mobile network. Google said its interest was in ensuring that customers would be able to buy any mobile device to connect to the full capability of the internet. At present, wireless carriers routinely try to restrict which models of cell phones that can be used on their networks. They also often limit the software that can be downloaded onto them, such as ring tones, music or web browser software. Google Phone
