Let's Cut the Hype: Facebook's Email Service Won't be a "Gmail Killer"

Facebook is launching an email service on Monday. While that’s only a rumor for now, I think it’s a well substantiated one and there is little doubt in my mind that that’s what we are going to get. But this won’t be a “Gmail killer” as the project is apparently internally known at Facebook. Sadly, though, the meme that this could really be a Gmail killer is already making its rounds and won’t let up until Monday – when exhausted bloggers will likely split into two camps: those who think Facebook just killed Gmail and those who are disappointed that it didn’t.
