Will Gmail Officially Launch on April 1, 2005?

Arik Hesseldahl over at Forbes writes about Gmail being made available to even more people. He reports that “random users” at Google.com are being invited to open Gmail accounts. Arik then goes on to speculate that Gmail might “officially” launch on April 1st, exactly one year after the beta became available amidst talk that Gmail was just an April Fools Day prank from the Googleplex. I’ve heard other Google “watchers” (myself included) also speculating that April 1, 2005 will be the date of the “official” launch. Finally, a note to Forbes, it’s Gmail not G-Mail.
