I am Stephen Baker, an employee at ERMS Corp, based in Oakville Ontario.
We provide a hosted emergency notification service, and we would like to include PIN messaging in our list of communication options.
Will the Push API allow sending PIN messages? If not, what are our options?

The BlackBerry Push Service allows you to push messages to a custom application installed on a BlackBerry Smartphone. It does not support PIN messaging.
However, what you describe is possible, but requires a BlackBerry Smartphone. You could have a front end aplication (on a web server or where ever) that accepts the BlackBerry PIN of the destination user, subject and message. This application could then communicate with a custom application running on a BlackBerry Smartphone in your environment, which could send off the PIN message to the destination user.

The wireless network is going to play a major role in determining the timing... so it is difficult to give an exact number. Generally PIN messaging is very quick (nearly instantaneous for small messages if there are no network delays).
However, if you are sending 10k messages at once that need to be delivered quickly I would recommend making use of multiple BlackBerry Smartphones for sending (in the configuration described above).
