    Anyone notice the main Gmail page (where you login) has a link to open an account using your mobile phone?

    https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1

    It doesn't appear that you can create an account manually through the web site, so it's just a cell phone based deal right now. I guess it's just available in the U.S. for now.

    People without cellphones or those outside the US can still receive email invitations from friends/family like before.

    Right, but this seems like the first step in making Gmail openly available to the public. It's just that you can't sign-up in the traditional way.
