I did some additional searching and didn't come across the information I recall reading previously but it does appear that the speculation is that more official information should be coming out this month and that there will likely be a free version and a paid version.
If this is a RIM re-branded version of SmrtGuard I wonder if it's something that they will push billing through on the carrier level. This also begs the question of how much more (or less) various carriers will charge and if it will offer improved features over the native SmrtGuard.
Not to point fingers, but if carriers are the ones handling the billing then I don't envy those on big red. BIS-X anyone?
In that case we should all create the biggest corporate account include everyone in BBOS, make savings on the plans and use BESX
