with the recent google stunt where they blocked 200+ email accounts, I have been planning to move over to some other paid email service and replace all of the google products that I use. The only thing I cant replace is the android and I need a gmail account for it to work :-/

You can create a Google account without a Gmail account. Look for the link "I prefer to use my current email address" when creating a Google account.

Yeah, that one terrified me as well. I was strongly considering setting up their e-mail for domains service until I read about that.
