real push email (you need to pay for that with Gmail)

Beg to differ, if we're not talking about SMS push e-mail which is as rare as hen's teeth nowadays then IMAP IDLE is real push email, ActiveSync is a rather more chatty protocol. Gmail supports IMAP IDLE and Android clients like K9 and MailDroid do.
