So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

Alternatives?

The giant corporations can no longer be trusted. Build your own mail server. Use a raspberry pi, if you have to. Google is as evil as Apple now, and they should all rot in hell.


Drama queen much? Google has built its empire on ad revenue. Frankly anyone who is surprised by Google's move to place ads in Google mail for Android is naive. I purchased my Android device knowing full well that I would be subjected to advertisements in exchange for an open platform with many more hardware choices and at a much lower cost than Apple's iOS devices. Get over it.
