    .... Blackberry is the king of push e-mail and you don't know what it is?!

    push email is when the phone doesn't search for mail every 5 minutes or so, and instead the mail is pushed to the phone as soon as its in the server. hope i explained that right

    Doesn't that use up even more battery? Does the HTC Incredible have push e-mail? I never noticed... I just wait for the notification to pop up lol...

    If your mail is set up on a Gmail account, you're using the push e-mail function on the Droid. Yes, it does eat up the battery some, but I really prefer the real time mail. Helps a lot in my business.

    Smart phones wouldn't be very smart if they didn't have real time e-mail. That is a reason why blackberrys have been so popular. Of course, they are dying because of smarter smart phones, like the droids.

    Exchange email is business related. I think it involves microsoft exchange. It's a way for people to get their work emails on their phones. Push email actually saves battery in most cases. Your gmail account is "pushed" to your phone as a new email comes in. When you set up a different email on an android device, ie...yahoo, aol, etc... the email app actually goes out and looks for email at different intervals. You can set it to look at different intervals or not look at all and only access it if you actually select to look for it. Push email can cut into your battery if you're getting emails every few minutes but I only get 3-5 a day. I have a yahoo account and I have it set up to only look for emails there every 2 hours. Hope this helps.
