Further to the above, Honeycomb users can now sync the last 30 days of messages allowing them to read and search messages faster whether on or offline. Froyo and Gingerbread users can reap some of the benefits as well with performance improvements and a new labels API for third party app devs.

The latest version of Gmail for Android can be freely downloaded via Google Play for all devices running Android 1.6 and up.
