RIM are now offering a brand new feature for the BlackBerry app developers - Push notifications. Dev teams are welcomed to use the BlackBerry Push Service in their own apps bringing live updates to the mobile.

The BlackBerry Push service comes in two packages - Push Essentials and Push Plus. The first one is free and gives the standard functionality - delivers push content. The Blackberry Push Plus has free and paid tiers and will provide advanced options such as Push delivery reports.

Thanks to the Push notifications you will be able to receive immediate updates on all your Push-enabled apps such as weather, email, all kind of news, etc. The max push content is 8KB and the first apps that use the service are Weather Bug Elite, Sports Illustrated, the Hockey News and Time.
