First Google Sync made it ridiculously easy to sync your calendar and contacts to your iPhone, Windows Mobile or Symbian S60 phone. Now Google Sync will also allow you to get push Gmail on your iPhone, iPod Touch or WinMo smartphone.
Push Gmail means that emails will be delivered to your phone as soon as they are received. Most phones check the email server for new messages every 15 or 30 minutes if you’re lucky.
The one problem with push Gmail on your mobile device could seriously drain your battery. This is most likely to happen if your phone is getting ‘woken up’ constantly to download messages.
Hopefully Apple will fix the battery issues inherent in the iPhone version 3.1 update. The latest word is that Apple is seeking user feedback but has not yet acknowledged the problem.Similar Stories:
