If you’ve got a fancy high-end device, you already know the joys of having your email available on your mobile phone. But what if you’ve got an older model, or don’t want to use the built-in email client? That’s where BlueWhaleMail comes in. They’ve created a java-based POP/IMAP/SMTP client that works across a wide range of devices – basically, if you can play games on your phone, you can probably run BlueWhaleMail.
The client itself is free (though of course you need to watch out for data transfer charges from your phone company). They’re using what is by now a traditional strategy to pay for it – the top pixels of every message get taken for the company to display a banner ad to you.
