I have read some conjecture about what the workaround supposedly is going to do. If they were correct (a big if), then it would no longer be push email. The user would have to initiate a call to the server to get their mail. Sounds like it might be correct. I agree with the above comment, though. If the workaround were really good - RIM would implement now. They must feel it is inferior to have even offered the $450M - let alone anything more.
