Still nothing mentioned for us poor suckers here in France (not that i'm in any way suggesting the French are 'suckers')

I'm looking forward to ordering my 8300 from Orange France in 2011 along with those new hover shoes I've been reading about...

For a second there, I was trawling the web looking for info. Should've known just to go to Blackberry Cool...

So, here's the problem - the phone is only being released on Bouygues Business Services. Not that i'm going to trash Bouygues on a public forum (I saved that for the email to Blackberry Cool) or go into detail about the ins and outs, pitfalls and nuances of trying to set up a business in the bureaucratic country in which I now reside (even though I'm essentially self employed and heavily reliant on my Blackberry), it looks like the hover shoes are a safer bet for us non business customers on France's two dominant networks (Orange & SFR).

However, thanks for the update. I'll continue to live in hope

Ditch France, move to a free country. The 8300 is worth it!
