    I must admit Latitude is pretty cool. I have my co-workers and friends on it.

    Nick, I've got you on Latitude at the Hauptbahbhof in Frankfurt. Seems to be working fine. I'll be curious to know if you're hit with massive data useage charges in Germany.

    Actually i'd be interested in seeing how your coverge works out. Bars or no bars kind of thing.

    Also, how are you going to keep them charged?

    Do you have something like this there?

    There about 20.00 american. May work on your phone. Not sure but you might want to have some sort of battery backup.

    good luck on the trip.

    Ok so T-Mobile charged me for email (and I tried to be good - I did TwitPic via Email and got dinged.) I'll call them tomorrow and find out what happened. But I can handle minimal data charges if I can Twitter/Email, but I can't TwitPic.

    Ok, I got hit with a $14 roaming charge, which basically involved Twitter, Latitude and emailing a 400k photo (and with gmail and pop3, downloading it too), but T-Mo credited me for it so we're all square and they're my BFFs again.

    I did get a second battery for both my 8820 and 8900, so I'll be good to go for most of the trip. I also have a APC battery backup that charges USB devices. My real concern is camera batteries.

    I'll plan on turning on the BB every 4-6 hours to at least ping where I am. From March 7-11 I'll be in Moscow, so I expect awesome GSM coverage. March 11-15 is where I will find out if I can get coverage or not between Moscow and Irkutsk. But part of the fun will be seeing where I have coverage and where I don't.

    BTW, the my Trans-Siberian Map is at http://tinyurl.com/transsiberianrailway - to give you an idea of where.

    Have a wonderful trip! I've found that Latitude can be a battery drain, so I don't know if you'll be using that, but I will be watching. If nothing else, maybe this will force me to become a Twitter user. -bob

    Right now I'm in Irkutsk, near Lake Baikal in Russia. I've been using my Mac + 8900 + 8820 (work) to keep in touch with home and both have been doing well. I did learn that I should shut off location aiding on my GPS on the phones for much quicker sigacq.
