There is nothing lacking or wanting with the way iOS handles that and a BB or Android or WebOS phone will not do any better (or any worse, I'd imagine).
This statement right here is exactly what the difference is. A true PUSH, like a blackberry uses, alerts your device the second a new email is received. Having your device ping the server for new information, is a PULL. This style of PUSH is a RIM patient so it will most likely never be found in another device.
