At an event like BlackBerry World we're used to seeing lots of BlackBerry users walking around with their heads down in the CrackBerry prayer position as they type and text away on their keyboards. But at tonight's BB World opening reception party, I just couldn't help but hit record on the 'ole CrackBerry camera when this guy walked past me holding his BlackBerry PlayBook out in front of him as he walked and talked and video chatted with his family back home. Now that's hardcore. Gotta love it!

Oh, and it turned out he was a CrackBerry fan. Watch the video for a chuckle!!

Got 4 for the family , Prince George, Vancouver, Edmonton and Hong Kong. The one brother in Toronto is an iPad fan so nobody is talking to him.

...with millions of skype users vs a handful of BB tablet owners, its more likely you than him missing out.

Video isn't available on my 9800, atleast.

Edit: Just watched it from my PC. How bad is your home wifi, if your experience is better through a public open hotspot? lol

berrybait

Hey RIM Marketing, are you listening? That is the type of thing you should use for advertising. A highly portable device which allows you to stay in touch with family & friends.
