Starting with Gmail, the news is that the number of contacts the email service can store has gone up from 10,000 to 25,000 contacts. The increase applies to all Gmail users, including Google Apps users. Mountain View-based search engine giant Google explained that it bumped up the number of contacts Gmail can store so that users can store all their contacts in a single place.

With 25,000 contacts, it’s safe to assume that a fairly large number of emails will make it to the Gmail inbox. And so we make it to the second Gmail-related news: Product Manager Paul McDonald has shared some tips on how to set up Gmail and power through hundreds of messages. Here are McDonald’s tips:

Turn on Priority Box, the feature that automatically identifies your important email and separates it out from everything else.
Show more conversations in the inbox. By default Gmail displays 25 conversations in the inbox. But if you go to Gmail Settings and look for 'Maximum page size' you will be able to change that default value and bump it up to 50 or 100.
Enable keyboard shortcuts. To view a list of available keyboard shortcuts just press 'Shift + ?' when in your inbox. Please note that keyboard shortcuts need to be activated before you can use them. A link to enable them is available in the window that shows up when you press 'Shift + ?'
Enable some Gmail Labs experiments: Inbox preview (displays a static preview of your inbox while Gmail is loading), Send and archive (adds a button that lets you send a reply to a message and archive the conversation in a single click), Background send (sends emails in the background while you are free to do something else), Auto advance (automatically shows the next conversation instead of going back to your inbox after you delete, archive, or mute a conversation).

Moving on, Google has recently announced that Google Earth optimized for Android-powered tablets has been rolled out and is available for download on the Android Market.

“With the recent release of tablets based on Android 3.0, we wanted to take full advantage of the large screens and powerful processors that this exciting new breed of tablets had to offer,” said Product Manager Peter Birch. “Moving from a mobile phone to a tablet was like going from a regular movie theatre to IMAX.”
