Using Google Sync, you can now get your Gmail messages pushed directly to your phone. Having an over-the-air, always-on connection means that your inbox is up to date, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Sync works with your phone’s native email application so there’s no additional software needed. Only interested in syncing your Gmail, but not your Calendar? Google Sync allows you to sync just your Contacts, Calendar, or Gmail, or any combination of the three.
iPhone users with Gmail accounts (or those with Google Apps Gmail) can rejoice! While we’ve had Google Calendar syncing for a while, the ability to handle “push” Gmail and Contacts syncing is new this week.
