Is "push" a future technolgy?



the AIR and WebWorks API lags of push support for Playbook and OS 10. Ist push a technology that RIM will provide in future? Is it a better idea to leave it back and create my own solution with (for example) WebSockets?


best regards

Push is on it's way for both AIR on PlayBook and in WebWorks for BB10. You will see them at some time this summer (exact dates are not announced). Push is a central BlackBerry capability that you can expect to see in the platform.
