From The Register:

Users signing up for a Gmail account are now being asked to provide a mobile-phone number in the continuing war against spam, though Google will keep it handy just in case anything else turns up.

The new requirement pops up as part of the Gmail sign-up procedure, and requires the user to provide an SMS-capable number to which a security code can be sent. If you don't have a mobile then Google suggests you borrow someone else's, as those without one won't get a Gmail account anymore.
