Good stuff! I've not done any native-app development so this was new to me, but I feel like it gave me a very good intro into how Push is done on these four platforms. Liked the use of code samples, but again I don't write native apps so this was a bit unneeded for me.

very usefull session

Great job - clear concise explanations of how it works, supported by code and references. And totally agree on the increasing irrelevance of Blackberry as a dev platform.

For those of you that were not looking specifically at the native landscape; I've researched some additional information:

Appcelerator supports iPhone Push Notifications: http://developer.appcelerator.com/apidoc/mobile/1.0/Titanium.Network - see registerForPushNotifications

Phonegap does not seem to support any push notifications but they do have a notification class. However; you can accomplish push notifications through Urban Airship in PhoneGap: http://wiki.phonegap.com/w/page/41670190/Push Notifications on IOS

Hopefully that helps!
