Default Hello from Qatar!

Hi All

New to BB (8320), new to this site...

Somehow unusual BB user - in the country I live in (Qatar) BB has no service, but after intensive research and comparison, I decided to go for 8320, as I simply couldn't find overall better device on the market. Ordered unlocked one from CTI-miami, online.

Previously, I had SE P900, P910, Treo 650 and then 680. After being loyal for years, finally had to abandon Palm platform - no WiFi, ancient OS, devices as heavy as bricks, crashing itself and my MAC on synch randomly..

BB 8320 - so far great, works here in Qatar with my normal data plan (GPRS), and combined with WiFi in the office and home, it is ultra-fast. So far, BB browser works great over WiFI, and I've installed Opera, Gmail, Google Maps, Logic Mail for POP, and IM+ Skype - all working perfectly. MAC synch with Missing Sync is also phenomenal. Not missing Treo one bit (except for, ehm, treaded SMS..)

Cheers All!
