    This may have been covered already, but at least this confirms push IMAP instead of the crap that WinMo offers.

    About WWDC, even some of the top analysts have no idea what is going to be announced by Apple and a lot are doubting that new hardware is on the way. iPhone OS 3.0 is coming and it is an evolutionary; not revolutionary improvement to add features that the Pre is going to have from day 1. I think Palm is poised to work their way into businesses with their Exchange support. And also, they have not even started the media blitz yet that everyone knows is coming, so this should be an exciting few weeks.

    not sure it confirms anything special. i think there should be some commas in the ad. ie -

    MSFT EAS, IMAP, POP3 (Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc.)

    Could be, but I like to look at the fact that the services that come after IMAP all support push IMAP on other platforms, so they should be able to do it on webOS. But I've also been looking on the bright side of tech lately.

    i didn't know IMAP offered true push. isn't that the klunky bastardized version of push via SMS? is not EAS more elegant?

    The iPhone can do push IMAP with Yahoo. The G1 & S60 devices with Nokia Messaging can do push IMAP with Gmail. And yes, I believe it is true push because I would get the mail on my E71 before it refreshed on the web.

    Is EAS better? Probably. Is EAS free? Never found a free service I liked.

    IMHO, it is hard to beat Exchange and the integration of Exchange with Activesync in WM. I could care less about IMAP.

    Oops...I did not mean that Exchange/EAS was crap. I meant that the Windows Mobile out-of-box IMAP is crap. I do not think you can beat EAS for on-device email at all unless you have a way to get GMail threaded emails on the go.

    I would like to have push IMAP in addition to the EAS support. S60 devices have both, but they have a terrible default email client.
