Reason I'm asking is because I'm planning to keep my 'new' device for years and I'd hate to see my BB device not be supported in the near future.
I think RIM's BB solution is going to be here for a long time. First of all MSFT solution is not push, it is pull. Plus you will always see MSFT catching up with BB's with respect to features. Furthurmore things like stability and reliability is something BB is known for. Since MSFT solution is not out yet so I cannot comment on these. Security is another major part of the BB package. Plus you can access third party apps like CRMs etc using MDS. So in my opinion BB solution is not going away anytime soon.
