I don’t want to start anything here, but over at The Apple Blog, there is a post asking what is so special about push email. Being a Blackberry diehard, I have to say that the author might be in for a bit of verbal bashing from other Blackberry users.
Personally, I don’t know if I can switch to the iPhone without some sort of push email solution. It will have Yahoo! (blah) for push email, but I am a Gmail and Google Mail hosted user. I am hoping that some Google push is setup before the phone launches (also an iChat client would be nice).
There are only 15 comments so far, and only a few from Blackberry users, but I have a feeling that there are some VERY strong opinions from BB users that push email is an essential part of their daily life.
