HTML5 brings Gmail to Apple, 44 new languages

Posted by Mike Luttrell

If you live in South America, speak Brazilian Portugese, and use an iPad for all your Internet access, then you're in luck. Google has finally brought Gmail support your way.

The Gmail mobile site now supports HTML5, the rich Web code that the iPad and iPhone use instead of the more traditional and content-rich Flash standard.

The new update also brings support to these languages for the first time:

Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian (Bokmal), Polish, Portuguese (for both Portugal and Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish (for both Spain and South America), Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian, Urdu and Vietnamese

The language will trigger automatically based on what you're phone's internal language setting is.
