Google to let you customise Gmail, for a price
There'll be rules on domain names and all that, but it will allow you to have something more personal to you, rather than the usual address.
Now, this will come at a cost, and it looks like Google will charge $2 per month. We suspect that Google will do the $1 = £1 rule on this, so in the UK, you'll have to cough-up a couple of quid every month. That'll give you exactly what you already have, but with a different address.
For $5 per month, you can get extra storage, coming in at 30GB, along with 24/7 support and probably some other stuff you won't use. Then, for the go-getters among you, you can spend $10 per month for unlimited storage with archiving capabilities and Google's eDisovery service.
"We know that your first choice of username probably wasn't [email protected] which is why we're experimenting with scalable ways to provide other options. This is just a test though, and we haven't made any decisions for the long term," a Google spokesperson said.
