Actually, I see that Cing's "BB Personal Plan" (unlimited, BIS only) is $29.99, and their "BB Unlimited" (BES) plan is $39.99. So it's really a $10 difference, not a $15 difference.
I'm currently using a Treo with Chatter against an IMAP server, and my total data charge is $20/month. It's hard for me to justify spending an additional $40/month to switch to BB BES, although I'm really getting tired of crappy Palm OS.
So the news about BIS 2.3 is good for me - guess I'll have to go get a gmail account...
