It's vague at best, but by way of their Twitter account an Android version is mentioned

Mailbox is a relatively new, but still pretty impressive iOS Email client -- for the full rundown be sure to check out iMore. Currently limited to Gmail accounts, Mailbox opened up to massive queues of people waiting to get in. It wants to help you get on top of your mail and stay on top by prioritizing what matters right now. So, why are we interested? 

Besides being a first rate application regardless of platform, the developers have publicly hinted at an Android version being on their roadmap. It's pretty vague, but when questioned on Twitter they did indeed confirm that "other platforms are coming down the road - including Android."

We're definitely wanting to hold them to that. Gmail on Android is a pretty decent experience, but we're never going to snub the prospect of getting in on one of the hottest new apps.

As much as I love Mailbox on my iPod (which means it doesn't get much use), they should add features like Gmail labels before they should consider moving platforms. They don't even have a proper iPad version of Mailbox out the door yet.

Also, "other platforms are coming down the road - including Android" sounds pretty definitive to me. :P

You obviously haven't been following them on twitter. Even before they launched the iOS app they said many times they are planning an Android app later on.

It would have been to start on android since iOS can't set any app as a default. I dont know any iphone user that is actually use the app. Plus the whole slow release launch where users got in a queue of about 600,000 and waited their turn to finally use the app was annoying. Don't get me wrong i'll still give it a whirl if and when it comes.

To the people saying that the gmail client is fine for them, good for you but I prefer having a clean interface for my apps and I can not wait to get this all on android.

Are there any GOOD, tablet-optimized Android mail apps out there? The only one I know of is Maildroid, or so I've heard. But, while I'm happy to support developers, $18 seems a little steep :-|

The Gmail app itself works fine. Wake me up when this thing handles other POP3 & IMAP email accounts. :)
