Through very few persons, who have rode and previewed Google wave, I got the impression that
GMail + GTalk + Google Docs + Blogger + Real-time Colloboration = Google Wave
In the techCrunch review , My expectations were like
1. It is synthesis of Gmail, GTalk, Google docs and Blogger.
2. After writing a text, I will decide whether I want to publish it to my blog, save it to google docs, mail it to my friend or transfer this file through GTalk or collaborate and edit it with my friend.
But when I used Google wave, It was not what I expected. It was more of a platform than an application. Now wave users will take a call how they want to use it.
It is its real-time colloboration and gadgets that will make a difference. It is more like firefox. It is users who create their own flavor of browser that is really appealing to all of us.
