Ads are coming to GMail mobile app

The latest version of Gmail 4.6 is now card based like Google Now. We all know the desktop version of Gmail has ads, well the mobile app version 4.6 also allows for ads using cards.

As its card based you can save an ad and it’ll become part of your inbox. Don’t like it, and you can swipe it away.

I am not sure how I feel about this as normally with a phone one would have paid a certain amount of money already for the hardware. If for example I have just bought the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which costs in excess of £600, I would not be too happy to start having ads in my inbox.

But is this the future of android, or the death of it?
