    Waterloo, ON and Beijing, China - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) and China Mobile today introduced the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9788 smartphone, the newest addition to China Mobile’s BlackBerry® smartphone offering and the first to support the nation’s TD-SCDMA wireless network.

    Featuring a sleek, iconic design and an incredibly easy-to-use keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold 9788 is elegantly styled and packed with powerful communications, multimedia and productivity features.

    China Mobile and RIM have to date been focused on successfully introducing the BlackBerry solution to enterprise customers in China. The launch of the BlackBerry Bold 9788 smartphone showcases the strong partnership between China Mobile and RIM, and provides a solid foundation from which the two companies will continue to work to better address local market needs.

    I agree with you,Joe.To release an OS 6 device at this time while OS 7 devices are being released in different regions made me think that it could be special for China.
