    I have another android 2.2 9.7" tablet, and it uses iPad's identifier,so it loads iPad view when using gmail web. I wonder if I can some how force gmail to load iPad view on touchpad

    gmail iPad view is very well designed. It looks almost the same as the built in email client, but can handle labels better. Therefore I sometimes would like to use the web interface.

    thanks!

    p.s. is there a ipad view link/URL of Gmail? That would be great as it would not affect other programs.

    Currently there is no way to do this, without badly affecting other programs. Maybe soon though.

    There is a homebrew app for the phones that changes the browser ID to that of the iPhone (sorry, cant remember the name, but you should be able to find it in Preware and then contact the developer). I guess there could be something similar made for the TouchPad as well. Although I do not know what other impact such a change would have. Both browsers are Webkit based and are HTML5 compliant, so on the face of it there should be no implication. Heck, even the Kindle Browser based app may then run on the TP.

    This is what I was alluding to

    TouchPad > Galaxy Tab 8.9

    I have a feeling there will be more and more amazing homebrew as time goes on. Esp since people are getting this cheap..it is something to test and mess with in the Geek community.

    I was able to get it display the mobile (iphone) version by using this link:

    https://mail.google.com/mail/mu

    Cant yet get the ipad view though.

    I wish I could use the iPad view on my laptop, its vastly superior to the regular Gmail interface.

    Not sure if Google will listen to the requests being made, but it might be worth commenting on this thread.

    Can we get the iPad-optimized Gmail interface on the HP Touchpad? - Gmail Help

    .... But using this is pointless because the touchpad browser doesn't support two finger scroll (overflow elements)
