Gmail name change?

Google seems to have changed Gmail to Google Mail. All instances where "Gmail" was found is now Google Mail.

Even the logo has undergone change.

Update: Looks like it is back to Gmail again as far as the main page is concerned. But the Gmail Help mentions Google Mail all over the place, and still holds the new logo! :)

If I'm correct, this name change would be present only for mail accounts in the UK. Apparently, Gmail was already a trademark there and they couldn't buy the name from that guy. [I got this info from Google Weblog some days back, if I remember right!]

Venky, I Agree. The name gmail was supposed to remain for accounts outside the UK. Thats the reason I expressed surprise at the name change! :)
