Google's official mobile blog has just (and finally!) announced Push Gmail support for the iPhone!
Integrated into their existing GoogleSync service, which up until now supported only contacts and calendar, now:
One big caveat remains, however. GoogleSync is powered by Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, and most devices -- including the iPhone -- can only handle one (1) EAS account at a time. So, if you're already using Exchange ActiveSync for your corporate email, that slot is taken and GoogleSync is useless to you.
For everyone else -- joy! And if you try it out, let us know how it works for you!
