    Hi guys,

    With the impending release of ATT Palm Pre Plus, can we discuss Gmail sync options available to WebOS? It probably has been discussed before, but a quick search didn't turn up a definitive thread.

    The fact that WebOS can do multiple exchange account is great. I am using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) with my work email and currently have Gmail forwarded to work so that it can be synced to my WinMo phone. I know that Gmail can do EAS and IMAP IDLE. What are the pro and cons of using either? I'm hoping some of the WebOS veteran users can chime in.

    I use Google Apps to control my personal domain, and connect to it with EAS. As long as you're ok with it syncing all PIM categories, it's excellent. The mail doesn't seem to respond differently than when I was just using IMAP; arrives immediately as it should. Contacts and calendars also sync appropriately.

    What is Google Apps? Is there a review or guide with screenshots that I can check out? Thanks!
