On Sunday, I sat down with my son to watch the first episode of Transformers: Prime on Teletoon, in Canada. He loves Transformers and, as a father should, I take part in his interests. Okay, who am I kidding? I think I may have been a little more excited about it than he was. There's nothing like a little of the standard father–son-Autobot-Decepticon time. Between scenes of robots kicking ro-butt, we also saw the introduction of three human characters, as well. At one point the Jack Darby character was talking to his Mom on his cellphone, I caught a quick glimpse at its keyboard and realized it looked just like a BlackBerry Pearl Flip. Again with the third character, Miko, got a call from her parents, this time the Pearl Flip was in plain sight – in pink. It was hard to see which phone the second character was using though. So maybe I shouldn't pay that much attention to detail when watching a cartoon. Maybe I shouldn't have been watching at all. That being said, I think it, out of all of the devices out there, the Pearl Flip was their choice. Perhaps they are trying to say that even with the Pearl Flip, there is "more than meets the eye".
