This just blows my mind. Stefan from IntoMobile spotted the fact that China Mobile has passed the half a billion customers mark. That is crazy compared to the largest US carriers who have less than 100 million. The fact that China Mobile has more customers that the whole US population is just mind boggling. Now I totally understand why RIM has been pushing BlackBerrys there.
Last time I checked it was only possible to get BES service and not BIS service. Anybody know if that has changed?

Wouldn't it be nice if when ever we messed up our live we could simply press ' Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over??September 21, 2009 at 4:50 PM #181349
BES is probably only offered in China so the government can read all the emails
