Lebron James

After watching LeBron James say on television this weekend at the NBA Skills Competition that he's putting his name in for the Dunk event next year, I was pretty pumped to see in the CrackBerry forums yesterday that not only is LeBron a BlackBerry User, but a gold BlackBerry user at that! Looking at the photos (there's another one after the jump), I'm pretty sure this a ColorWare creation in "GoldRush" stylings, but if somebody knows otherwise be sure to post in the comments.

Speaking of Gold Bolds, I've actually been emailing back and forth over the past couple months with the folks at Computer Choppers to check in on their progress on putting out a 24k gold-plated BlackBerry Bold product offering. Unfortunately, it seems using gold metalized parts on the latest generation of BlackBerry smartphones hasn't turned out all that well, so don't expect to see too many celebs rock'n actual 24k Bolds or Curve 8900s, that is unless somebody feels like ponying up for the casting expense to put out solid gold parts. You reading this Lebron? If you don't want a gold-colored BlackBerry Bold, a solid gold one is just a big check away (think of it is as a way to get the economy kick started again with some consumer spending). Maybe Computer Choppers will have an easier time gold plating the Storm... less buttons to cast! :)
