    So one of the big things with webOS 2.x was the addition of true push notifications for 3rd party apps. Am I missing something, or are there no apps that yet utilize this feature. One app that I would expect to see it in above all the others would be HP's own Facebook app. All I see are timed notifications. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know who told you that push notifications were coming with webOS 2.x, but that was never announced by HP/Palm and it is not coming from HP/Palm for a while if ever.

    Isn't it one of the things Palm announced a long time ago but never implemented?

    I think you guys are confusing push notifications with a dedicated service like the one Apple offers for push notifications. I haven't seen HP/Palm announce such a service, but with the addition of node.jsjsjs $services$ $in$ $2$.$0$, $it$ $should$ $be$ $possible$ $to$ $set$ $up$ $a$ $long$-$lived$ $connection$ $with$ $a$ $server$ $that$ $will$ $push$ $information$ $over$ $that$ $connection$. $I$ $think$ $that$'$s$ $how$ $the$ $email$ $app$ $can$ $sync$ $incoming$ $mail$ $from$ $gmail$ &$quot$;$As$ $items$ $arrive$&$quot$;.

    I think I'm remembering a different article pre central had actually. Because I remember a PC editor making a big deal about actual push notifiction because Palm had said it was coming n not just a MMS notifiction.

    By MMS I meant Mojo Messaging Services, not notifications of text messages.

    I know that in 1.4.5, with the YouView visual voicemail client, I wouldn't get my voicemail notifications. The only way to get the new voicemails (if I didn't have the app opened in the past 10 mins or so), was to open the app. It had to do with the amount of time Palm allowed apps to run in the background after closing. Now, in 2.1 on my Sprint Pre - , I always get my voicemail notifications and I never open the app. I think that's push, no? I just assumed they were allowing push notifications now in 2.0 and above because of this experience :]
