    I was watching the MW2007 keynote where SJ introduced the iPhone again, and when he was showing the email feature, he showed a split-view email option.

    I have an iPod touch with the January update, using gmail, and there's no option for it.

    is it on the iPhone?

    is it on my touch, hidden somewhere in the myriad of menus?

    is there a way to do it with other email services?

    This would be nice, although I am getting by fine without it.

    The screen is just too small for both the email list view and selected email viewer. They made the rite decision leaving this out.

    Preview Lines Offers a Compromise

    I agree it would be too crowded. I watched the SJ demo with the split screen and thought to myself then that it would be a waste of real estate. When I looked on my iPhone I realized the feature wasn't there anymore.

    The best bet is to go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and under the Mail section you can modify the Preview option to set how many lines of the message should appear in your inbox view. I've got mine set to 5 (the max) and works nicely.
