    My Samsung Focus is my first Smartphone. I like it a lot, except......

    I love Gmail (including chat) and Picasa. I bought a Windows Phone because AT&T didn't have an Android phone that I liked. The Captivate has GPS issues. I assumed that Windows phone would have Gmail and Picasa apps, or at least they would quickly become available. I also wanted something similar to Android's CoPilot, that gives audible turn-by-turn navigation. It's free, and AT&T offers a similar service on the Windows Phone for over $10 a month.

    So to sum up, I want:
    Gmail App
    Picasa App
    Voice GPS app
    I haven't heard any rumors that these are coming, and I'm starting to think I made a big mistake.

    Some of those being Google specific apps makes it less likely we'll see them in the Marketplace. Google's Gmail app for Android is excellent --

    They might one day release a web based version. They've done that for iOS, but it doesn't render well on IE. In fact, it looks like a WAP site.

    That plus multi-tasking. Mango cannot come soon enough.

    Gmail stuff doesn't really peak my interest, simply b/c if I wanted that stuff I'd have gone with an Android phone. Plus, I'm in the minority & don't have a Gmail account any longer. :eek:

    Here are some Apps I'd like to see:
    1) Words With Friends
    2) Chat Client (for AIM) - Meebo perhaps?
    3) Geometry Wars
    4) Angry Birds (for my son)
    5) Best Buy
    6) Dish Network

    If I'm correct, Angry Birds will make it's debut next week.

    I haven't seen anything related to Words With Friends.
