what is this phone?
hey so im a big fan of CSI and ive watched all the series of miami, ive noticed that every single phone the csi's and the cops use are blackberry pearls and blackberries but in the latest series theyve been using a new phone that looks really stylish and i was wondering if anyone knows what it is? ive googled and cant find anything. here is a printscreen i took during an episode i watched earlier as one of the csi's dialed a number

Stage prop? Most companies pay money to the movie industry to have there products in movies and TV shows. Maybe RIM quit paying or canceled the series and no one else has picked it up so they used a stage prop. It's called Embedded Marketing. I can guarantee BBs weren't used because the producer likes them. They actually have "brokerage" companies that you goto to get your products featured, complex payment system based on visibility, length of time on the screen, ect.

the screen changes as she types but i thought it wasnt too relevant as im sure they enhance mobile and computer screens on tv shows? (i might be wrong i just heard it somewhere)
its a shame if it is a prop as it looks quite nice and even has a charger port on the side of it. i thought was a lot of effort to go to designing a phone if its just a prop, they dont seem to have dropped blackberry as they had an 8900 in the episode too

Most screens like cellphone screens are added in post-filming so you really can't go by the images you see there.
Did a little digging around over at Android Central, and as far as I can tell I think it's the HTC EVO 3D - based on charging port location and the buttons on the bottom. In the picture above, it looks kind of like it has a shell or case on it...

HTC EVO 3D with a simulated screen image. just like on TV commercials.....i mean look how big the screen is. its meant so you, as the viewer, can see it. computer generated....not real.Apple iPhone 5 - iOS 6
