IMAP, A New Feature In GMail, Get your GMail ON iPhone

Gmail users can now use IMAP to synchronize e-mail on their iPhones and desktops.

Matthew Glotzbach, product management director for Google Enterprise, announced the release of IMAP support in Gmail Wednesday at Interop New York. Glotzbach, a keynote speaker, said Gmail account holders can begin using IMAP immediately. He held it up as an example of Google's attempts at continuous innovation, saying it's one of many new features Google has added since launching Google Applications in February.
"IMAP isn't new, but bringing it together is," he said.

I also so this information on the GMail site;
" Sync your inbox across devices instantly and automatically. Whether you read or write your email on your phone or on your desktop, changes you make to Gmail will be seen from anywhere you access your inbox. Don't fret if you don't see "IMAP Access" yet under the Settings menu. We're rolling it out to everyone over the next few days."
But this video explains how to set it up once you have in your settings menu it.
GMail Blog also has an article on IMAP and Syncing GMail across devices with IMAP.
