Google Launches New HTML5 Version of Gmail only for Arabic Phones

Google recently launched a new HTML5 Version of Gmail that runs in the browser. This would seem convenient, except for one simple issue: the web page is only viewable if your entire phone is in Arabic. Recently, Google announced that Gmail’s new HTML5  web interface runs a user interface entirely in Arabic. Also, the HTML5 web page is not for everyone, as it only works for phones or tablets running the Android OS version 2.2.1 or higher with Arabic as their default language.

TalkAndroid.com has tried to get a glimpse of it. However, Google does not set their settings based off of Gmail, but the phone itself. It seems that the only way to check it out is to flash an Arabic ROM to your phone and then take advantage of the new 44 language support by Google.
