I came across this article the other day:
Engadget: Gmail for Android updated, becomes Market app
The new feature they were talking about was the priority Inbox. I am all for new features and I thought I would give it a shot. But, I couldn’t find it in the market!
I searched for the App on AndroLib, but I didn’t see it there. Then, I searched on AndroidZoom and found it. In fact, AndroidZoom has a nice list of all the applications that Google puts out.
I tried to scan the QR Code found on the download page. This is the error message I got:
There are no matches in Android Market for the search: pname: com.google.android.gm
And, I think I finally found the problem on the official blog. The application requires Froyo! Here is the quote:
The Gmail update requires Froyo (Android version 2.2), so it’s available if you have a Nexus One, HTC EVO, Motorola Droid 2 or Motorola Droid. (Not sure if your device is running Android version 2.2? Check here.)
