It's Called War-Google Mail Killed on Blackberry

Make no mistake about it. With the announcement of the deprication of the Gmail App for BB's Google is decaling war on RIM and the users of Blackberries who want to make use of a GMAIL client (which works very well) on their Blackberries. 

The reason is so simple. RIM competes with Android. So why make it easy for your users to work on the competition. Also, Google prefers web apps, not installed apps.

The GMail app on BlackBerry has not worked properly for some time now; for instance, the Search function did not work.

On the other hand, if RIM is supporting Android on Playbook (at least as announced) why would they be declaring war on RIM?
