RIM Ready to Sell the BlackBerry in China

we've been using them for awhile there, the only issue is that most places the fastest connections is GPRS. Shenzhen is EDGE, but that's the only place I got it, not even HK is EDGE.

And I know someone has a nice new 8800 over there as well now, one of our users lost a brand new one of those.
