Proud New Owner of a BlackBerryThursday, 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.
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.
