Over in South Africa Research in Motion has been kind enough to celebrate the returning Olympic gold medal winners be giving them each a limited edition gold BlackBerry Bold 9900. RIM's Managing Director of South Africa, Alexandra Zagury, handed over the gold smartphones to:

  • Cameron van der Burgh who broke the world record and won a gold medal for the Men's 100m Breaststroke.
  • Chad le Clos who won a gold medal swimming against champion Michael Phelps in the Men's 200m Butterfly as well as a silver medal in the Men's 100m Butterfly.
  • The members of the gold-winning Men's Lightweight Four Rowing Team - James Thompson, Matthew Brittain, John Smith and Sizwe Ndlovu.

To say I am jealous is an understatement. I shall just have to focus on BlackBerry 10 instead.
