Exclusive: Helio first carrier to get push gMail


This is a nice little Wednesday treat for all of you Helio members out there. If you use an Ocean, Mysto, or Fin, then you have access to the “ultimate inbox” feature, which includes IMAP access to your gMail.

IMAP is good, but on the go users want push email, and starting today Helio devices have just that for gMail accounts.

Just check your gMail like you normally would and you’ll be asked if you want to enable push. Say “yes” and you’re set. I’ve been using it this morning and it works great.

Helio is the first operator Google is offering this to, though our Google rep couldn’t be reached to say how long the exclusivity will last.
