It's very unlikely that they will do nothing but Blackberry mail services for something that targets the consumer-market.

That free and libre Software and making money out of it does not exclude each other was proven last but not last by the market-leader Android. Also its not all black or white. You can combine both worlds like its also done on Android (yes, you can pay for apps even there and they are making money with that!).
