onestly... we talk a lot about usability and do you want to compare
accessing Gmail from MicroB or accessing it from a native client?
Have you tried using Google Maps from N900 browser?! It's more usable
from Google Maps for Nokia N73 than from N900 browser....

No micro-browser is enough for Google applications, neither N900 one
nor iPhone nor Android one.... there's need for a native application
to access certain services.
