Google services optimized for iPad

Google releasing an experimental user interface for the iPad built on the Gmail for mobile HTML5 web app that we launched last year for the iPhone and Android devices. Those devices have large screens compared to other phones, and tablets like the iPad give us even more room to innovate.
First to receive some iPad-specific enhancements is Gmail. Google is experimenting on a new user interface built in the Gmail for mobile HTML5 web app. Speficifically this interface include a two-pane view listing down the list of conversations on the left and message window to the right. If you’re one of those who ordered the iPad, you can see this two-pane view when you access on the iPad’s Safari browser once you’ve received your iPad.
The use of HTML5 by web apps, which supports local caching of data for fast access, will take the mobile web or native app debate to a whole new level on the iPad.
We expect to see some fundamental interface and user experience innovations come out of this new way to use apps. Even subtle changes like Gmail's looks exciting, though.
