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?

I paid for my TV. I pay taxes for owning a TV. I pay for cable TV. And I am still seeing ads. And even if channels were ad-free, as soon as you see a sporting event you see ads. O the horror!

and in some cases this is a lot worse than ads in an app on your phone. Like those huge-ass billboards that lines roads and runs the landscape.
