Actually I'd love to be able to enter Chinese characters via Pinyin like I do with my BlackJack but that requires special software for Windows Mobile and I haven't found an equivalent package for Blackberry.

With regards to Japanese Input Support on the Blackberry:
This is apparently available for an 8707h model.
Then, it apparently expanded to other models.
Unfortunately, I don't have much other information.
I found this information doing searches for "japanese input blackberry"
But .... there is an issue with the Bold right now, apparently, if you google "japan blackberry bold" you'll see what I'm talking about.

According to a post in this thread:
Some software on this page will assist you on *any* Blackberry.
Sadly, I can not read the Japanese, so I cannot assist in the instructions for this software, or even tell you what the deal is.
Also, it is kind of funny, but Blackberries were being sold in Japan, without an option for Japanese input. [If you were Japanese, wouldn't you be a little ticked off?] So, only like last summer, RIM began announcing support for Japanese input in Japan [a novel idea, duh?]. Anyway, RIM hasn't been doing this too long, and the support for Japanese input is [as I stated in an earlier post] supposed to be available for a wide range of Blackberry devices at some point, though I can find no links to the software and/or no instructions on how to do it. Most sites I go to mention some type of IME software that you can get from a third party [that you have to get activated (probably by paying some $$)]
Wow, I see that I'm behind the times, this guy's website is selling how to set up languages on your Blackberries for $10.00 a pop! Wow.
And, I agree that it is bad that there is no list of Blackberries that feature Japanese input, as that seems like a majorly important feature. The Asians had the good smartphones before we did. Don't know why you'd put a Blackberry in Japan and not offer Japanese input from day one .... but that's just how I feel about it.
