Smile Kindle -- additional killer app idea

Amazon could work out a deal with Google Mail to provide a customized email experience for Kindle users. I know http://m.gmail.com works, but I'd really like to see a http://kindle.gmail.com site that is specially tailored to the Kindle, and its limited browser capabilities.

Just think: Not only would we have the best e-book reader out there, but we'd have a pretty usable email client over a high speed wireless (EVDO) system.

Gino.

There would be an airwave cost associated. Who would pick up that tab?

Maybe Amazon and Google could work out a split on the text ads.

Actually kindle connects periodically to check your emails from amazon and other stuff like updates, twitter...

Why they should make a deal with google mail if they provide you excellent support for your amazon email? Only it costs you for whispernet transfer ...

Are we talking about Kindle 3? It loads full GMail perfectly (landscape mode). It also loads it very well in basic HTML mode. And mobile version works too...
