While I was just about shutting down for the day last night, our good friend @tomagreen dropped me a mention on Twitter. He sent along a link along with "check this out" and told me where to look on the page. I clicked the link, scrolled a bit, and sure enough saw something that was both creepy and funny at the same time. What you see in the image above is just what I saw on the page. A white BlackBerry Bold 9780 with a zoomed in image of Universal Search. Only it wasn't some generic John Doe on the message list - it was Adam Zeis and Bla1ze. So curious as to where exactly the image came from and how it ended up on a Vodafone device page, we did a little digging and realized it came from Kevin's post on BlackBerry 6 (scroll to Universal Search).
So I do indeed find it amusing that Vodafone liked the image enough to use it on their page (flattered really). I guess RIM doesn't provide images like this for carriers and they must have not wanted to take some on their own? Who knows. If you look closely you can see they even cropped out the AT&T banner from the image, though it still shows (a bit blurry) on the device image. So we just thought we'd pass this along as a bit of CrackBerry humor. If you come across anything like this and want to let us know, drop us a line at tips(at)crackberry.com.
