    i heard them mention that aol im is on the fone but is it a third party app and will it have push? i mean imma sidekick user so i rely heavily on my instant messaging so if it wont be a similiar experience i think ill have to pass....

    dude also said it requires a voice plan...which i do not want to tlk on the G1...i have a second line with a standard flip fone...

    but yea im just wondering if anyone knows about how the instant messaging will run all they showed was google talk which seem'd to had push notification...but yea if anyone could give me the heads up! becuz aim on iphone and other fones suck

    IM is always push. so yes.

    if you meant e-mail, then yes. it will feature push gmail. IMAP and POP3 will be pull, like on any other device... you will get notified, but it wont be instant like with push technology; the device will automatically check your email every 5, 10, 20 or so minutes.

    if you want your email pushed, best bet is to forward it to your gmail account, or just wait until a full featured email client is developed for the device.
