If you're a nerd like me who likes to run his or her own mail server and web mail client, you may want to check out Mailr, an open-source webmail client with Gmail like features. The author claims that "Mailr is at the beginning of development" and that "there is a lot of work that has to be done," but it's looking pretty cool already.
Mailr will have web interface, which will be fast and useful on laptop with small screen, on big monitor and on iPad Mini (these devices I have and I want a one customizable web interface for them).
Mailr will have gmail compatible mode (through IMAP), so return to gmail will be easy. I will also not plan to implement a phone version and this mode can be used in parallel with any phone client which connects to gmail as usual. That is also easier to develop using gmail as the first backend.
Mailr will have many features from gmail, such as: useful conversations, labels, fast search, filters for sorting incoming messages, detecting and folding quotes, keyboard shortcuts, SSL support...
