Re: Google Talk & Gmail Chat ?
If by "Gmail Chat" you mean the chat from within the Gmail interface,
then yes, they are the same thing. If I have my GoogleTalk running, and
have a window open to Gmail, and someone sends me a message, the first
message in the conversation appears in the Gmail window (as well as in
the chat window created by GoogleTalk), and subsequent messages are
only in the GoogleTalk window, in my experience.
I think the Gmail Chat was just designed to provide mobile chatting
with GoogleTalk, without having to install any more software.
