offline gmail

Google demonstrated how gmail can be accessed offline along with its features such as search etc enabled on an iphone. This doesnt require any iphone specific software to be installed. Instead it makes use of HTML to enable this features. This is how it has challenged Apple allowing iphone uses to make use of Google's features at no extra cost. If the same was enabled though a software then apple would have taken a roality for making the application available on its apple store, but this wont be the case.

However, this has not been released in the open market. Anyway, we can expect it to hit the market very soon. Google demonstated this feature recently on iphone and Android G1
