The Prada Phone by LG - How Will I Convince My Girlfriend to Buy a BlackBerry Now?!

The PRADA phone by LG For the past year I have been trying to get my girlfriend Erika to buy a BlackBerry Pearl or the new 8800 when it hits the market. For the first 6 months the answer to my pleas was a flat out NO. But over the past few weeks, mainly thanks to my annoying non-stop talk of the upcoming launch of crackberry.com, her NO's turned into MAYBES and I could tell by next week the answer should be a YES. 

But yesterday, the unthinkable happened.  She discovered the Prada phone by LG. It was announced on January 18th, 2007, so it was sort of old news to me (read the official press release here), but it was news to her when she saw it online, and I knew the moment  her eyes fell upon that PRADA logo that my mission just failed. 

So RIM, if you're listening, can you please get your business development team working on a deal with Versace or Louis Vuitton.  Until then, I think you will be losing out on the business of at least one potential customer and I'm sure she's not the only one out there who values fashion as much as high-tech gadgetry.

My boyfriend looooves his BlackBerry - and like your girlfriend, I discover things a year later. So you can imagine my surprise when I opened up a PRADA leather box at Christmas to discover nothing other than a cell phone. I had asked for a BlackBerry - believe me, I've begged. But in the end, I'm a girl - and I absolutely LOVE my phone. Even for the outrageous $500 he spend on it. While the BlackBerry takes the cake on a lot of the features - mine's completely unlocked and have been able to do a lot with it. It takes time and patience, but I love being able to whip out my phone and people ask in amazement - A PRADA PHONE? (shallow, I know) but it comes with being a girl - not to mention how sleek and trim it looks!
