From banks to eateries, schools to hospitals, all I hear is the ‘ping’ sound. The blackberry ‘craze’ just can’t go unnoticed. The blackberry phone has being around for a while with the first model released in 1999 as a two-way pager. The more hip and happening models got released in 2006 and since then improved models have been rolled out.
The blackberry phone is being embraced due to its browsing ability and the blackberry messenger feature it possesses. Using a blackberry phone, one is guaranteed one-touch internet on the go with the world at your fingertips. You can also chat with your friends all over the world as long as they have an activated blackberry phone too thus cutting costs on international calls. The blackberry phone also guarantees you quick access to your e-mail account and social networking sites like facebook and twitter.
In a nutshell, the blackberry phone keeps you informed and widely accessible. On the other hand, the blackberry phone is making people ‘socially unsociable’ you see people talking, laughing and even sobbing to themselves while peering at their phones in public places. The blackberry phone has also made internet fraud easier with its easily accessible chatting platforms which allows interaction between people. The blackberry phone has become an addiction. People are seen ‘ping-walking’ and ‘ping-driving’. We dress these blackberry phones with fanciful rubber or plastic jackets and buy screen-protectors and other accessories.
I am sure most people would pick their blackberry phones first over their bibles if both were to fall in a bucket of water. To belong to cliques in schools now, you must own a blackberry phone. Then at the end of it all, everyone’s jostling around for money to re-subscribe even without food in some bellies. To some people life was easier when ‘berries’ were just fruits. Well, the blackberry phone is definitely going to be around for a long time so I implore us to use and manage it wisely.
