I am new to posting questions in forum, kindly bear with me. I have couple of question regarding Push architecture. I googled for an hour, but cannot find my answers.
My application needs immediate response, when server gets new data. This could be accomplished by Push or creating an constant socket connection with the server. I guess the second one consumes more battery, because there will be no use of Push then
What is the difference between Push and always-on socket connection with server?
Is Push using different method to get updates from server?
If Push is not always-on data connectivity. Then how the data is pushed from MSP to the device without data connectivity. Is it using any other protocol like USSD?

here is a good ppt document whick explains all the different kinds of pushes you can use on the BlackBerry.
Page 2 & 3 & 5 in this ppt should explain why you should use push and not polling for data in an specific interval or have an always-on-socket!!!
There are some different kinds of push Services RIM is providing.
See page 6 in the ppt for more informations.
Hope this helps a little bit.
