Where'd the videos go?

I'd love to see some review of the features of Gmail on BlackBerry. Namely any shortcut keys and such. (And maybe an explanation about why they're not the same as everything else on the BlackBerry. ;)

One piece that really needs addressing is the gmail app on Nokia E61 - the "Delete" (or trash) key is "#", but that requires you to do shift+key, which takes two hands. It would be much nicer if one could configure it to use an alternate key, as I understand making a single-key-press could be dangerous for some users. But it would be nice to have the option to do everything with one hand...

google mobile guys and users,

browsing the web with my blackberry, i detected the inconvenience of social bookmarking. in other words: it is not really possible to use google bookmarks or other services on blackberries, nokias, htcs and others..

but of course it is possible to start a call with a blackberry when you are browsing a website. so we have developed a nice application to save bookmarks directly from your mobile device.
would be great if you google guys and blackberry users could take a look at it.

at the moment we use an austrian phone number. but don´t hesitate to make a call. it does not cost a cent because all the information will be taken from a "missed call", honest!

I miss the feature of being able to hit a button and add the the business as a Contact in your address book. Why is that feature gone?

Would it ever be possibly to download complete Google Maps to your phone, so I don't have to be connected to the Internet??
