Google Announces Push Updates for Gmail



+ Add a Comment


I set it up and was pretty pleased with it except that now my phone doesn't hold a more than about 2 hours. I got the phone in june so either the battery is defective or push uses way more power than manual email check. 



I reverted back to IMAP on my iPhone. Being unable to delete messages from my phone (easily) was a deal breaker for me.  I need a way of getting rid of the messages I don't care about, and simply putting them in my Archive where I will likely forget they are there is an awful idea.

You can find a full list of the Google Sync limitations on the Google Help Site.

Thanks! I tired this out on the iPhone and it works very fast. Before I could even pick up the phone it was already sync'd both Cal and and email.



I tried this out on my Windows Mobile device. It doesn't work very well.  The push is a little slow (from 3 minutes up to 10 minutes). Also, attachments are not supported.



Palm Pre has had support for gmail push since it's launch. Of course, I believe it accesses gmail using IMAP instead of some weird connection like the other smartphones and is one of the rare devices to support IMAP Idle to have standard push functionality.
