    Enhanced Gmail Plug-in for BlackBerry currently in the works : Boy Genius Report

    That's almost as amazing sounding as 5.0 with the new BBM. Exciting stuff ahead for us!

    My Gmail on my BB is pretty good but FAR from great. Aside from the outstanding PUSH notifications, it's not nearly as good as my Gmail inbox was on my AT&T Tilt running WM6. Hopefully this is the answer to our problems!

    If you’re a Gmail user with a BlackBerry this is going to be a proud moment for you, no question. It’s ok to admit it — we’ve all shed a tear or two when thinking about just how poor Gmail integration is on the BlackBerry platform. Read status doesn’t sync, no access to folders/tags and so on. Dry those eyes though, BlackBerry fans, because it looks like RIM is finally planning to start cooking with gas. Rumor has it the Canadian company is hard at work on an “Enhanced Gmail Plug-in” that will add various functionality to Gmail integration. Rumored functions include:

    ■See your Gmail based emails in Conversation View for simple topic management
    ■Add and remove labels and stars to emails to keep inbox organized
    ■Archive and report as spam actions for mailbox management on the go
    ■Search your entire Gmail inbox

    The plug-in is being beta tested right now internally and amongst a lucky few outside the company. Mmmmm.

    Gmail from both my accounts come into my combined message folder but, to be able to manage the messages in something that resembles the real Gmail on the computer, is very exciting....bring it on!

    Seems like the type of thing they might stick in 5.0 to help hype it.

    I never use the Gmail app unless I need to search for some old email on the go, which is rare.
