Thumbs up ActiveSync for Push Gmail

So, I haven't seen an follow up to this thread about using ActiveSync to get Gmail push to the HTC Mail app.

Just to share my experience, I setup ActiveSync for Gmail using the instructions posted in that thread, then setting the frequency to "as items arrive". I now get my Gmail litterally within 5-10 seconds of actually receiving it. In fact, I just tested it out by sending myself an email on my computer, and my phone beeped within 5 seconds.

Looking at my phone without any extra processes running, it doesn't seem to be "scanning" or trying to pull email every so often. Maybe I'm wrong, but this seems like a legit real time Gmail "push" to my phone. I'll have more info on battery life over the weekend, but for now this works great.

Anyone else try this?

Worked for me. You need to have a hotmail account for it to work I think.
