To the best of my knowledge, no active open socket -- it is supposed to be true push, in the same line as RIM's email technology.
For this reason, RIM's instant messaging utilities are the most battery-preserving instant messaging clients, so I am looking forward to these.
Remember, RIM has already released Yahoo, Google Talk, and BlackBerry Messenger.
