Price of BB 8900 has come much closer to 8520...diff of 3k in india...so would suggest to go for that...if track pad is not compulsory guys..
Does this model has a document editor for MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF files?

Also the Asian ones have different characters or symbols on some keys.

Don't think there is a difference other than maybe dates of production. Quality control should be the same wherever a device is made.

Don, 16 Mar 2010Does edit documents? (doc, ppt, xls)?It only views files at first. Then you need to purchase the premium version for creating new ones or editing them. If you don't want to purchase it, then you can save a blank .doc on the phone and just press save as and that well allow you to create new docs.

If yours is taking that long and doesn't boot-up at all, then you might have a corrupted file in the OS. You can either reinstall the OS or install a new one. If it's still under warranty then you should take it in for a replacement or something. For instructions on reinstalling the OS, go to crackberry.com and look for the forums called Blackberry 101 How To... there should be one on reinstalling and one for installing it to a bricked berry, just in case your PC doesn't read the device.
have purchased this handset a few days ago, i say can for email and blackberry messenger its amazing, by far better than any other rival, nothing comes close to it.
in terms of operating system, its not that great, alot of plan text sub menus and looks all to formal/corporate, not enough apps (even in blackberry app world) i've been using symbian nokias for 5 years and although it can have bugs, it can do alot more and has alot more apps.
never the less, this is a great handset and very addictive, you just cant help checking it very 5 mins for emails and bb pin messages, just wish blackberry could make the os look better and do more and more apps.
the new curve 8520 is the best best mobile I ever had...
And it is the best for its value...
Amazing work BB..
