Proud New Owner of a BlackBerry

Thursday, June 24, 2010

So I've been eyeing the BlackBerry since its humble, not-so-stylish beginnings. Way before it became a huge fad, I loved its shape, I loved the keypads, I loved everything about it.

But it wasn't available in Malaysia, and wouldn't be available in Malaysia for a very, very long time.

Then the BlackBerry became available in Malaysia, and I immediately set my sights on it - only to be shot down by my Dad. He said it was highly unreliable, and a waste of money.

So that was how my BlackBerry dream ended.

Fast forward about 5 years, and suddenly, everyone has a BlackBerry, including both my Dad and Mom. (My Dad first bought my Mom one, only to rush out two days later to get himself one :p)
By this time, I'd already gotten myself a new phone. But it didn't have the convenience the BlackBerry carried along with it. I won't go into the details, but yesterday, my Dad finally gave me the go-ahead to get myself a BlackBerry.

So in spite of the fact that I am well and truly against mainstream gadgets - you're looking at a proud new owner of the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

I've already synced it to my all-important e-mail account, and installed MSN, and downloaded an expense logger. I know - so glam. I am psyched!

And now, off to study Tax Law. Yay.
