Google’s handing out free GMail accounts per textmessage/SMS. But only if you have an American phonenumber!
Funny thing though… if you go to the localised version of the page like let’s say the French, German, Spanish or Dutch version most of the text is already translated. But you still need an American phonenumber though. 🙁
So what does this mean? A. Googles automatic translation is pretty awsome or B. you can get GMail accounts using your local operator pretty soon.
If you can’t wait and still don’t have a GMail account. Drop a mail to gmail(at)thinklemon.com.
