Bad news Symbian owners, if you currently rely on the Gmail Java client for your phone, it seems that Google is quietly pulling the plug on the app and ceasing support for the app as far as Symbian devices are concerned. No official announcement from Google on this matter, but we guess since the app hasn’t been updated for the past two years, it was only a matter of time before the plug was pulled anyway.
When Symbian owners attempt to download the app via http://m.google.com, they are instead greeted with the screenshot above that directs the user to a barebones Gmail page. When we say barebones we mean barebones because apart from an image or two and some links, your emails will not load images or rich text information. The good news (?) is that for those who still have the app is that you can still use it, just don’t expect to be able to re-download it in the future.
