Well I really don't want to be charged long distance + roaming charges when I want to call a Beijing number. Also, I really don't think that China Mobile sells Blackberry's, so getting one when arriving there is really out of the option. Getting one through Hong Kong would make it so I'd have roaming charges and long distance charges if used it in Beijing I think.
