What happens to my iCloud account when I no longer own an iOS device?

In about a month of so, I will be saying good bye to my iPhone 4. Does any one know what happens to the iCloud account once you no longer own an iOS/Mac device? In other words, do I need to purchase a used iPod touch for the sake of keeping my @me.com email address?


Thank you in advance!

It's not tied to the device. It will continue to exist, and you can still access it at iCloud.com on a Mac or a PC.
