Google loves to launch product by invite – Gmail, Wave(ok, that didn’t go so well), Google+ and now their latest venture Inbox. When announcing the new product yesterday, Google advised people to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invite to the system, and it looks like a wave of invites has just gone out.
Google is running a twitter account – @inboxbygmail which has just announced that a second wave of invites has now gone out.

Of course if Google is sending them out on a first come, first serve basis you could be in trouble. Many Aussies didn’t request an invite until hours after the product had been made public. Still, it’s promising that the invites are being sent out and bodes well for a potentially quick rollout to users wanting to try the service out.
