In your earlier post you wrote:
"Being that RIM has only recently put something on the market for the 'ordinary user', I'd expect something to come along at somepoint." That's an extremely intelligent statement and I hope you're right.

Either way, I could see an occasional opt-in mailing list or something for updates where it gives you a URL to click on and it loads an activex component simular to windows update to update the handheld.
