As we know that HTC Hero owners will be getting Android 2.1, we can all look forward to this upgrade at some point down the line. The list of new Gmail additions in Android 2.0 and 2.1 are as follows:
- Quick contact badge: Press the contact status icon within Gmail, and a handy box shows all of the ways you can reply to a contact — including email, chat, SMS, and Facebook.
- Voice input: Swipe the keyboard, then just speak to select contacts or write an email, complete with punctuation.
- Multiple Gmail accounts: Sync multiple accounts to the same device and switch between them without leaving the app.
- Undo: A handy ‘undo’ link makes it easier to retrieve messages when you hit archive or delete by mistake.
