Macworld is reporting that Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.1 will finally get IBM off of their current WebMail solution (see video above) and onto real support for real push email to the iPhone:

Early last year, Apple licensed ActiveSync so that businesses could push their corporate Exchange e-mail messages to iPhones. Since the ActiveSync client is already embedded in the iPhone, adding ActiveSync to the Traveler product was a good way to enable push Notes e-mail to the iPhone, [Ed Brill, director of end-user messaging and collaboration for IBM Lotus software] said.

Good on IBM.

We only have one question -- hey, Google, if they above is true and ActiveSync client is just sitting there waiting, where's our push Gmail?

(Apologies to IBM for the tangent).
