我在eBay上以几十块的代价淘来了这款黑莓，这也是我的第一款黑莓手机。因为黑莓OS10之前的手机不用BIS基本残疾，所以只能当备用机了，当然在国内有刷移动的破解ServiceBook可以在外用EDGE，不过那个速度在4G时代就是聊胜于无的，我百度个餐馆花了5分钟时间地图都没加载完（汗）。不过我个人还是很喜欢黑莓OS的，操作流畅，对多媒体的支持非常赞，还有微信和QQ可以用。加上精致的高分屏幕和小巧的机身，我就这么抛弃了作为备机的Treo 680（Treo哭死在墙角）。黑莓的键盘快捷键是系统级的，光学轨迹球超好用，而且键盘手感和Treo持平，除了没有好用的字典应用和输入法，其他的完爆Treo，离Treo 680发布才4年时间，岁月真是一把杀猪刀 XD
I bid this Blackberry on eBay for few dozen dollars and it becomes my first Blackberry. Since phones with pre-BB10 OS requires BIS to function normally so it become my backup phone, though it can use patched ServiceBook to utilise China Mobile's EDGE network without BIS, but come on, its EDGE! and 2015 is the year of 4G! I can barely do a normal search on 2G network and a simple map took 5 minutes to load (and it failed to load eventually). Compare to Palm OS I like BBOS very much. It's fluid, support multimedia well and it has a app store with usable WeChat and QQ in it. Plus its high resolution screen and compact body, I just decided to give Treo up (what a pity). BBOS got system-wide keyboard shortcuts and a wonderful optical trackpad along with a keyboard as good as Treo has. Except a great dictionary and input method app, it just crush Palm OS totally. I have to say time makes a difference, and they are only 4 years apart.
When I got the delivery this 9780 just looks awful, and it seems to be an ANZ corporate phone with their profile installed (that explains its condition). I never played Blackberry before so it took a while to familiar with its OS and hacks. I tried to remove the profile and installed with a Hybrid ROM to prevent random disconnection of Internet service when there's no BIS subscription. I also removed most of obsolete apps. Also I came with the idea to refurbish it since the white one just feel gorgeous. I Taobao-ed full enclosure and LCD assembly (it has front glass fused so...) in white. I also bought a new trackpad but it was a DOA and it's too rush to return. I also bought the smart holster usually come with a new phone. It is as stylish as its function. That's good.
BTW, Blackberry now uses Android. Compare to classic BB phones, how does BBers think?
