Feel like everyone who’s anyone is using an iPhone? Think again. Many of Blackberry’s most severely addicted users are high profile celebrities who are eager to flaunt their Blackberry cell phones for the camera. In addition to the list of reasons why Blackberrys gain favor over the iPhone, which include a removable battery, a camera with a flash, the ability to copy and paste, optional memory expansion, and stereo Bluetooth, it seems that Blackberrys have become a fashion accessory on par with handbags and fedoras.
The list of celebrities that are on the Berry is endless, but here are the names of some of the hottest celebs who have been recently seen sporting their Blackberry: Britney Spears, Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan, Reece Witherspoon, Kristin Cavallari, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Shenae Grimes, Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kournikova, Eva Longoria, and Sarah Jessica Parker. For the boys, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, 50 Cent, Nas, Cary Hart, Kanye West, George Clooney, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise are all frequently seen with their Blackberrys in hand. Most of the boys on HBO’s Entourage, including E, Vinny, and Ari, always have their Blackberry in the scene. Even the biggest celebrity of our time, and the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama is a known Blackberry addict.
Like with most facets of life, celebrities get their cell phones for free. Because they have access to so many different brands of phones (for free), the fact that so many celebrities stick with their Blackberry says a lot about the company and it’s product. Many celebrities, like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, have been seen using some new phone only to quickly return to their trusty Blackberry. Interestingly enough, most celebrities pass over Blackberry’s number one competitor, the iPhone. Dale of GeekSugar feels that in the celebrity world, “The iPhone just kind of faded away.”
