I've been reading up on this, and I wouldn't expect it too soon. From the research it seems that a BIS push isn't as robust as real IMAP, which is what the GMail applets are like - true multi-device sync. The new applet may be your real solution for a bit of time...
What I mean by that is on an IMAP server you can have two clients open (think Thunderbird and a webmail client like SquirrelMail), and any changes to one are reflected on the other almost immediately (depends on how often your IDLE is set). The GMail applets work the same in conjunction with their webapp client; I can have Firefox open to do GMail and the mobile client stays in sync with any and all changes. It's really very slick, go Google.
BIS - while offering reconciliation and push features - doesn't truly keep accounts in sync. You can open Yahoo in the web and your BB mail, read an email on the web client and it's 'read' (aka IMAP "\Seen") status is *not* reflected on the handheld (easiest example I can think of right now); this truly does make it more of a push one-way (sorta POP-esque on steroids) solution.
(I'm currently researching a real IMAP/S client, so this is fresh in my mind.
LogicMail is cool, but I need SMTPS support so I'm digging around for commercial offerings. Slim pickings. :-/ )
