Back around May RIM announced the BB Push Notification Service and I haven't seen any apps that yet use it. http://na.blackberry.com/eng/develop...b_tab_overview
Apple has had this on the Iphone for a while now and, while they use it to mitigate the lack of background app support it has grown on me.
Push notification has been great for breaking news alerts, weather alerts, sports scores etc, and doesn't require the app to be running in the background. Alerts are almost instant and actually very useful.
Anyone heard anything more on it on the BB platform?
