Your Kindle is great at reading a book (at least to me and a few other folks), but did you know you can also check your Gmail account (Google’s free email service) on your Kindle? Why pay for an iPhone or a Blackberry when you can access your email account for free from the Kindle? Here’s how you do it:
From the web browser in your Kindle, point your web browser to http://m.gmail.com – use this specific link as the regular email link will time out / bomb on you.
Being able to access my gmail account via the Kindle vs. other means is going to help me out a lot, and I hope it does for you, too!
