Blackberry babe Kim Kardashian gives boost to phone giant
“BlackBerry is my heart and soul," Kim told Recode’s Kara Swisher at the outlet’s Code/Mobile conference
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian seems to be on a mission to save Canadian telecommunication giant Blackberry after she praised the company during a tech conference this week.
“BlackBerry is my heart and soul," Kim told Recode’s Kara Swisher at the outlet’s Code/Mobile conference.
"I love it. I will never get rid of it,” she said. "Sometimes I'll send up a Twitpic on my BlackBerry," she said.
“I use an older one, though. They don't have them in stores anymore. I buy them on eBay. I have three lined up in my room so if they break. If one breaks and I'm down to two, I search on eBay until I have my third. I have anxiety I'll run out," Kim said.
During the conference, Kim also said that she worries the company, is struggling to gain power in a mobile market dominated by Apple and Google's Android, will abandon the market.
"I'm afraid that it'll go extinct," she said.
The pretty brunette also has an Iphone to post pictures and other items on social media.
