 I'm looking at an app where I will really need to support PUSH
After a bunch of Google searches - I'm generally confused as to the state of
PUSH support on Android.
IS there a standard way of doing it yet?
Preferably on 2.1?

 C2DM is only available for 2.2 and up. There is no direct way, or already
cooked up apis in older versions which you can use.

 I was under the impression that it was still in lab mode.
You can ask to join, which I did but I'm hesitent to release anything
that uses it until its released.
