You realise (at least for now) this is only aimed at back end server applications, and NOT user devices ?

Quote from: push notification developersí guide
Note: For notifications to user-owned devices (i.e. installed apps, mobile devices, or browsers), the poll-based sync guide is still the recommended approach to retrieve updates.

The important part, to my way of thinking, is they aren't doing away with IMAP.

Whew!!!
