While this may not make a difference to us currently (without FroYo), The gmail app has been updated and placed in the market. New Gmail App Lands on Android Market - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog Changes: While it's obviously good news they updated the gmail app, it's even better that it's in the market. When Android first started, the google apps were built into the phone (not on market) and the only way for those apps to be updated was through a software update (obviously come around rarely). With the apps showing up in the market it makes it easier for us to keep up applications up to date without having to wait for a software update. I for one find this to be great news.
