About browser push
Browser push is designed to push information from a web application to your BlackBerry® device as the information becomes available.
For example, you can use browser push to receive updates for weather reports, stock quotes, or breaking news. When your device receives
an update, a new browser push message might appear in a message list or, an icon on the Home screen or in the application list might
change to indicate that new information is available. The web application might also push updated information to your browser cache
without notifying you. If information is pushed to your browser cache, the information is available on your device even when your device
is not connected to the wireless network.
Your device supports different types of browser push messages. Service loading messages and service indication messages include updated
information. Other browser push messages include messages that appear in your browser cache.
