There is at least one difference: Mailbox only supports gmail, and as such only asks for oauth credentials with permissions to read from and write to your inbox, not username/password. Linkedin does the same thing with gmail (and google apps) but they also support mail services that don't have this support.

I guess Mailbox will support other email soon
