∞ Google updates Gmail for iPad

Google on Monday updated its Gmail service for users of Apple’s iPad. Of particular note is Google’s use of the larger screen real-estate available on the iPad. The new email compose window is much larger, allowing users much more room to type and navigate through the Web app.

While Apple (AAPL) is the clear leader in the large touch screen device space, the new functionality of Google’s (GOOG) Gmail will be a worthy addition to all larger touch screen devices, especially those running Google’s own Android OS, which are expected to debut en mass later this year.
