BlackBerry coming to China

Its been a long 8 years wait for Research in Motion (RIM), the manufacturer of the successful BlackBerry mobile device. They had finally been given the clearance to bring BlackBerry to China. RIM expects to start selling the products by the end of next month and had already received 5000 advanced orders.

I dont reckon that BlackBerry will enjoy the similar success in China like in the US as the usage of emails in China isnt as critical as those in the US but i m sure BlackBerry will have a niche and captive market of its own.

With iPhone coming to the market soon, I will surely make a pass for the BlackBerry and wait for the iPhone afterall iPhone can handle phone calls, email, Web browsing, music and videos. With the iPhone, I cant see any compelling reason for buying the BlackBerry.
