BlackBerry Goes Global
Last night I happened to have dinner with someone from Taiwan who was excited to show off his VisorPhone, which was a world phone. In turn, I let him check out the Danger Hiptop which he seemed to like very much. In explaining it to him, though, we compared it to a BlackBerry, and he said he had never heard of the BlackBerry – and that he didn’t think such a thing was available in Taiwan. It seems that the BlackBerry may soon be coming to Taiwan and plenty of other places around the world. Today RIM announced a global roaming version of the BlackBerry that will work on various GSM and GPRS systems.
