Using Google Sync, you can now get your Gmail messages pushed directly to your phone. Having an over-the-air, always-on connection means that your inbox is up to date, no matter where you are or what you're doing. Sync works with your phone's native email application so there's no additional software needed. Only interested in syncing your Gmail, but not your Calendar? Google Sync allows you to sync just your Contacts, Calendar, or Gmail, or any combination of the three.
I've been using Google Sync on my Blackberry for about a year, and I love the way it syncs my Blackberry calendar with the Google Calendar feature. But until now Google Sync just did contacts and calendar.
Today Google announced that Google Sync will now provide real "push" email for Gmail to iPhones, iPod Touch, Windows Mobile devices, and S60 devices. This is going to make a lot of people really happy.
Now I have to figure out what I can do on my Blackberry. It's a bit of an older version of Blackberry as well. Well, wish me luck because if things go well for me next Tuesday you just never know what type of mobile device I might be sporting soon. Fingers crossed, folks. Fingers crossed.
