Nice! I often read emails on my iPod touch, using Gmail via Google Apps. I seldom write any on the iPod though because entering addresses can be a pain, and typing isn’t that friendly either.
But now Google have updated the interface for iPod and iPhone, and it’s very handy indeed: — New Gmail for the iPhone:
We’ve just released a new look and feel for the mobile version of Gmail on your iPhone. Our goal: make Gmail fit nicely as part of the latest Google on your iPhone experience. This means that we had to make Gmail faster and more fluid.
To do that, we decided to use AJAX–a powerful set of web development techniques that make web pages more responsive. We also implemented two of the coolest and most requested features for this release: pre-fetching and auto-complete. Now when you use Google on your iPhone, Gmail will automatically pre-load all your most recent messages for you. So when you decide to read a message it will be on your screen in a snap.
Address auto-complete is my favorite new feature–and one of the most requested. I wanted to be able to type a full email address in under two seconds on the iPhone. With auto-complete you can often get the right email address on your screen within 2-3 key strokes.

Looks good to me.
