    Pretty sure you don’t need an entire OS upgrade to roll that feature out. What I really want is the ability to delete emails from the notification area. Handy for those junk mail.

    Another minor addition that most haven’t noticed is the permanent pin of the inbox at the top of the labels drop-down menu. This is very handy for me, since I use labels frequently and constantly.

    Woo, Woo. You can delete a email before you read it.

    Welcome to 2009, I was able to do this with my Pre running webOS! Still look forward to this update for my Nexus S.
