    New Mail Notification not 100%

    I've been doing some testing using an iPhone and a Droid as regards to the notifications for new email. I'm doing this as the Droid's notification sounds are configurable whereas the iPhone's are not.

    Test parameters:
    email sent to two different gmail accounts simultaneously (both listed on the To line of my MTA).

    Every email that I sent to the push enabled (via Exchange ActiveSync) gmail account on the iPhone gets the new mail bong within 5-15 seconds of sending the mail.

    However, the gmail account on the droid can take anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes to play the notification *IF* it even bothers to play it at all (and thats the part that really irks me). Out of 10 email messages sent to both phones only 7 notified me on the Droid.

    I understand that the Droid is a new piece of hardware and that Android 2.0 is new software, however, this functionality isn't new to the OS and I would hope would work better than I've shown here.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior/have a workaround or know of a fix?

    Thanks to all.

    I am familiar with the problem.

    You need to go vote and let the Gmail developers that you want it fixed. The more votes, the more community interest, the faster it will be resolved.
