While the judging panel is still debating over which of the five finalists should win the grand prize in CrackBerry's BlackBerry Super Fanboy Contest, I wanted to give props to one of the most impressive non-finalist entries submitted.
Most tech junkies are familiar with the always popular phone tear-down video... where you disassemble a smartphone to see what's inside. And I think everybody can recall watching a classic movie where you have a military scene and soldiers training to take apart their rifles blindfolded.
With the Smartphone Wars heating up, it only makes sense then that true BlackBerry fanboys / soldiers should be trained and ready for battle... which putting one and one together means being able to take part your BlackBerry blindfolded! In the above video you can watch Alex Cervantes (user name TheWait_IsOver on CrackBerry) do just that with his Blackberry Storm 2. And after the take down is complete, Alex recites his This Is My BlackBerry pledge of allegiance (read the words of it below). Totally epic! Nice job Alex.
This Is My BlackBerry
This is my BlackBerry.
There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My BlackBerry is my best friend.
It is my life.
I must master it, as I must master my life.
Without me, my BlackBerry is useless.
Without my BlackBerry, I am useless.
I must operate my BlackBerry true.
I must IM faster than my iEnemy who is trying to kill BBM.
I must out-message him before he out-messages me. I will...
My BlackBerry and myself know that what counts in a smartphone war is not the sound of fart apps.
We know that it is the productivity that counts.
My BlackBerry is smart, even as I, because it is mine.
I will learn it as a brother.
I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its options and its menu.
I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against Apple.
Before CrackBerry.com, I swear this creed.
My BlackBerry and myself are defenders of the BlackBerry Community.
We are the masters of our iEnemy.
We are the saviors of my business and personal life.
So BB it, until there is no enemy, but Peace.
