BlackBerry Addict? 1, 2, THREE Berry's for Madonna

BlackBerry Addict? 1, 2, THREE Berry's for Madonna

Thanks to the CrackBerry Paparrazi who sent us this (and wished to remain anonymous). It looks like Madonna was caught on camera carrying not one, not two, but THREE BlackBerry devices. Looks like two 8700s and one Pearl. The odds are she was giving them away to the less fortnuate (those without blackberry's), as she is planning on upgrading to the BlackBerry Curve. Well, I guess in the case of...

New BlackBerry To Be Called The Curve

New BlackBerry To Be Called The Curve

Rumours are flying around this morning that RIM is continuing to deviate from its usual number-based system. The company’s first venture into strictly consumer-oriented BlackBerries was called "The Pearl" in an attempt to appear more consumer-friendly.
