I get push email to my BlackBerry from Gmail. Often times I get mail on my BB before is shows up in Outlook. I didn't set it up to use IMAP, I went through the BIS website, entered my address and password and it did the rest.
I have 2 Gmail accounts and 2 Google Apps Gmail accounts on my BB and they all work the same exact way; 90 times out of 100 the mail is on my BB before Outlook via IMAP. Idunno.
Gmail IMAP to Outlook or Thunderbird is nearly instantaneous. My BB is just that much faster.
