Google to stop GMail app support for BlackBerry phones
Google has announced that they will not be supporting Gmail application for BlackBerry phones anymore. The move will take effect from the coming 22nd November. If you have already downloaded the application on your BlackBerry device than you can continue using it without any problems but there will be no updates for the application and the download link will also be taken off by Google.
Google has been working hard to improve the Gmail mobile site now powered by HTML5 which is now supported by almost every mobile browser including BlackBerry web browser. Gmail app enabled BlackBerry users to view emails bigger in size(more than 3MB) which is limited in Blackberry Internet Service plans.
The move comes seeing a fierce competition among the two firms and Google wanting users to opt for Android phones rather than any other platform.
