Waiting for our BlackBerrys

After Hermann’s old Nokia had been dead for a few days and only awoke today and mine is having problems, too, we decided to make a huge step forward in technology and order smart phones. We opted for Curve 3G 9300.

One important reason why we decided to buy BlackBerrys is that they have got keypads on a regular basis. We didn’t want touch screens which become greasy as we have seen on other people’s devices. Another reason is that BlackBerrys are often used by companies to equip their leading personnel, and they wouldn’t buy cheap stuff, would they? So we feel safe with them quality-wise. A third reason is the “family connection” ;) One of my brothers is working for Research In Motion (RIM), the BlackBerry Company, as an engineer, so we had the luck to get very good advice on which ones of the BlackBerrys would be best for our particular purposes. Asking him saved us a lot of time searching the internet for information and reviews, as we would have had to do with smart phones by other companies. There is nothing worse than reviews contradicting each other by 100% which make things terribly confusing, and this is what happens often enough!

So now we are eagerly looking out for the e-mail telling us that the package is on the way and can hardly wait to have the BBs in our hands :)
