Windows Phone 7 Push Limits Confirmed by Microsoft

Microsoft [MSFT] has confirmed that there are limits on the amount of push notifications that can be active on a Windows Phone 7 smartphone. That limit is 15…

”Yes, the limit is fifteen third party applications can be concurrently subscribed to receive push notifications (whether that is a live tile or toast).”

That quote comes from WPF Technical Evangelist Jaime Rodriguez who posted it as an official answer to the rumors about limits being in place.

Microsoft has said that Outlook and People Hub apps do not count towards those 15 items and that the limit is not set in stone. The limit does seem to be enforced though and for the reason of battery life and user experience not being compromised.

Microsoft also indicate that the said limits are generally not reached by average users.
