My wife and I have different Gmail accounts. We are finding that the Tablet has trouble handling multiple Gmail. If she is using the device and viewed her Gmail and I try later to access my account, the system freezes up and seems to be flashing back and forth btw both accounts and shows neither. Tried setting up separate bookmarks for each account but that didn't help. I am open to any suggestions.

I also have two Gmail accounts on my Tab & have had no problems.
from apps I have dragged a copy of the Gmail Icon to my HomeScreen,
from the HomeScreen Settings, Accounts & Sync, Manage Accounts ... I have the two Gmail accounts listed,
from HomeScreen tapping the Gmail icon brings up the last used Gmail account, top border right shows 'user1@gmail.com',
tap this & you get a "Gmail X accounts" page, tap the 'user2@gmail.com' & it loads the account Gmail Inbox.
top border shows "Inbox" on the left (tap for other folders) tap return to go back to "Inbox",
to select another Gmail account, just tap the top right 'userX@gmail.com' to list the accounts & select

I have no other bookmarks or seperate short cuts, just the Gmail app icons.
are your problems occuring with the Gmail app or when trying to access your Gmail accounts in the Browser ?
