So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

I always hate how when you sync with play, it also syncs with Gmail. I have always from the beginning used exchange and mail app. In the beginning as in windows mobile days. From a practical point, it doesn't automatically sync photos and all that baggage.
also the Gmail app could not zoom for a long time.
I don't like scrolling, or better yet chopping.
but google has managed to gimp exchange server, I would sometimes have Gmail and mail with xchange on at the same time and xchange was usually a little faster on receiving email. But on the recent Gmail builds I mist admit it was 50/50 which would pop up first.
