Google works on an offline Gmail application for Webkit browser

Written by IT News on 3:05 AM

Google Vice President of Engineering, Vic Gundotra were present at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and came to the forefront to show a new "concept of Technology" to ensure that the products have a WebKit browser to use Gmail offline. Devices that can support the technology include the iPhone, HTC Magic (aka G2) and the next Palm Pre laptop.

The demonstration at mobile displays performed on iPhone, but the S60 browser, and other similar programs could support this system. For now, Google is still the notion in their laboratories, but it should be an interesting issue for the issue of Nokia ovi Mail.

It seems that the new application based on the HTML5 standard security measures AppCache and databases, which means that developers will be able to code a program that can only be run on multiple platforms, but also sports the same graphical user interface on all operating systems.

An interesting feature of the new program is that you bind data to the browser user-mail, e-mail inquiries that are not developed for the S60, WebOS or android phones. While it seems that it will be offline access using POP3 or IMAP, even in those applications.

Browser Google Gears has been enabled features for desktop users, and can experience off-line, access to Gmail, which means that new functionality for mobile devices is scheduled for next year. How many of you may already know, Opera has also announced that Google Gears will be integrated into your mobile web browser allows users to work offline and then synchronize with the server.

For now, Google has not announced a release date for its implementation. The demo video below gives you a taste of how it works.
