I'm extremely excited to announce a new passionate BlackBerry enthusiast to our team. Give me a hand in welcoming Jubei Raziel to the CrackBerry blogs!!

Since Friday I've received over 40 emails from hopeful candidates in response to my call for new passionate blood on CrackBerry. I'm still reading through all of the applications and need to get back to a lot of people, but Jubei's application was one of the first to come through and the decision to bring him onboard was immediate.

Jubei is a passionate BlackBerry fan, tech enthusiast and console gamer who spends a lot of time in CrackBerry's forums. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times last year when CrackBerry took its HQ to NYC for two months. Also an accomplished photographer, filmmaker and novelist, Jubei actually showed up at our CrackBerry NYC Party and took awesome photos all night long. And if Jubei looks familiar to you, it could be because you've seen photos of him in GQ, Maxim, Cosmopolitan and DNR —his experience with photography and video began as a high fashion model. Basically, Jubei is the perfect weapon when it comes to tech blogging. :)

You won't have to wait long to see Jubei's articles start appearing on CrackBerry. In fact, he started today and hit the ground RUNNING. Living in Manhattan, Jubei attended today's BlackBerry Experience NYC event. Only his first day of duty and he already met BlackBerry CEO, John Chen, along with John Sims (head of enterprise), Marty Mallick (head of apps) and other senior execs on the BlackBerry team. You can't beat that! As I post this he's working on his first post following up on this morning's event.

You won't find Jubei in the social sphere (which is kind of awesome), but for more on him you can check out his personal site at JubeiRaziel.com and of course talk to him here on the CrackBerry blogs and in the forums.

Welcome to the team, Jubei!

I say, now Crackerberry should hire an equally attractive female to even things up. As well as a new photo with every article that's published by her.

Hey, if Kevin can share photos of him in his yoga shorts, I'm not asking for much :D

Well with you flashing your six pack, I would guess the women would already say it's interesting.

Watch out for the virtual knickers being thrown at your

I now know what you are referring to. Tasteful, but I guess the bigger thing is what can't be found through Google lol.

@msflyingpeacock- I hope Kevin told him that photos of the author must be submitted with each entry, lol.

Welcome Jubei! I'm just playing. I knew the name "Raziel" sounded awfully familiar. Looking forward to your new contributions as a CrackBerry staff member.

hahaha congrats Jubei! And just cause you are a part of the team now, doesn't mean I wont raz on you for firstie postings :p But again, big congrats. Do the CB nation a favor and kick some butt with your reports!

lol just happened to be refreshing CB when i saw the post and read it fully and saw someone calling for me and it wasn't my fiancee lmao

I'd be worried if your fiance was flashing her body on the forum, unless you kind of like that sort of thing

;)

Welcome Jubei!

BlackBerry really needs to raise it's profile! I have the Z30, which is a great device; now we just need to convince everyone else!

I really appreciated BlackBerry's past promotions and marketing campaigns (I originally had the Torch 2). BlackBerry used to have some innovative marketing strategies so I hope this is a good sign of things to come!

You can see my modest efforts to revive BlackBerry; I have reviews of the Z30 on CrackBerry.com, as well as on various sites like Bell.ca, BestBuy.ca and TheSource.ca (I'm in Montréal, Canada).

Now I just hope the Z50 will become a reality....

Dude named after a legendary samurai and has publication experience too. That alone tells me he is a good candidate.

A big welcome. I'm looking forward to even more great informative reading and some awesome pics. Thanks for joining a great team of BlackBerry enthusiasts/lovers. supporters. The CrackBerry Nation!

Yeah I got that, normally, to be related to anyone, isn't it usually linked by the surnames?

It's like asking if Danny Devito is related to the actor Danny Glover.

Congratulations Jubei!! You've brought a whole new flavor to the CrackBerry team. Nice mix Kevin as the Master Chef.

Hey Kevin. Whenever you want to take pictures of Blackberry's. Just put jubei's face in the background. It will have double the effect.
Welcome Jubei...do you have a sister?

From Zarafet my Z30.

What sort of question is that? He probably has a brother whose just read your text and about to pull out your tongue, through your your arse,

;)

I've been watching you you know. You never used to comment this much. Then one day you started and said you were commenting soo much because you are on leave from work....it's been months now and the leave has refused to end. sigh.

Does that phone in the pic have BlackBerry version 0.01 on it? I'm thinking no side loading, right?

Ok, then you're jealous...... of his 6 pack and the attractions he is getting from the gals. I know how he feels. :)

Welcome Jubie,

Although you have been a big part of the community already. Well deserved, you've helped out a lot of people and I'm glad to see you rewarded for it

Posted via CB10

Congratulations!

The fact you are taking the time to read thru and respond to all these comments shows you care, which means you will not only write blogs, but always write to the best of your ability and with honesty because you want to please your readers and care about their opinions.

Good luck!

Wow! That is an awesome photo. (and resume). Looks like CB picked a winner there! Add +1 vote for including a photo with every article. I could look at Jubei all day long on my Q10. #TeamBB
