    it means content is "pushed" to your device instead of the device having to constantly poll for new content and when it is found download it or "pull" it.
    hope that is clear enough, if not I'm sure someone else will have a better explaination

    This sounds good to me as an explanation.

    That's pretty much it. In practical terms, push email devices tend to have better battery life as they don't have to regularly poll for new email.
