Sent from Steve's iPad: Universal Inbox for iPhone Mail, Google Docs to iPad, Free ePub Support
Apple CEO and part time CSR Steve Jobs is on a roll replying to the faithful about the state and status of their beloved gadgets, this time giving word on Google Docs to iPad, and a universal inbox for iPhone Mail and a confirmation on free ePub eBook support for iTunes and iBooks.
First up, TUAW tells us:
iPhone 4.0 perhaps?
Also, TiPb Facebook friend Andrea N sent us word from Jobs confirming free ePub books (like those we mentioned yesterday from Project Gutenberg) will indeed work on the iPad.
While the brevity (even terseness) of Jobs' emails entertain at times, it's amazing to see him respond at all, let alone so frequently. (Though we'd love to see Ballmer and Schmidt responding from their
BlackBerry Nexus Ones and Windows Phones respectively...

That would be good. I've got Email and SMS on my dock, ooooh what would I fill that extra space with? The possibilities... endless!
Anyone watch Archer? because in my mind its so much more entertaining to imagine Jobs 'yeps' delivered the same way Aisha Tyler delivers Lana's 'yups' in that show. :-)
Im SURE Apple would do it elegantly so that yo know which email account its from and an option to see them in their separate respective accounts too.
@Brian: Thanks for that, I will be sharing that thusly!
Back on topic, everyone ;-)
Will you be able to print over wifi? I'd love to be able to print emails, web pages, an especially iWork documents when necessary. This functionality would move it one step closer to being the simple computing appliance that Apple wants it to be.
What I would like on the iPhone is an inbox that combines email from several different accounts (MobileMe, Yahoo, etc) into one inbox like the mail app on the mac does. I'm running with 3 active email accounts and keep missing emails in the accounts that are not open......iPhone always seems to take you back to the most recently opened email account as you dive back into mail from another app.
