I think it's the same approach that was used on the Motorola Q when it was first introduced (before Exchange ActiveSync was available). A new message would hit your Exchange server, trigger an invisible SMS to your phone telling it to initiate synchronization, and you would then get the message. Now that I'm a Blackberry convert, it seems like a pretty inelegant solution to me.
