    I'm watchin the show and the killer took a picture of the victim with his Blackberry! Maybe he sent it to his facebook too. This might be a pointless post but I think its funny that Blackberry has made it so far in the mainstream that its an accessory to a fictional murder! Haha

    (BTW the phone was a 8330 Curve in silver... )

    BB phones have been making it more in the Law Enforcement arena in recent years. It all depends on the agency and how they use them. An old friend that I ran into last year received a photo of a person he needed to interview and a little bio.

    Much like Kleenex and Xerox, Blackberry is becoming a blanket term for the entire sort of broad family of QWERTY equipped smartphones. Early market notoriety has given RIM the advantage that everytime someone sees a smartphone with a full keyboard, button farm in the middle, and a screen on top...they think "Is that a Blackberry?"

    I always see agent hotchner using berrys on Criminal Minds. He used a curve in season 2 and now he's using a pearl in tonites episode. I kept thinking that the pearl might not have enough memory for a fbi agent lol

    You all do realize this has nothing to do with the supposed
    popularity of the BB or it's emergence in the mainstream.

    It is all product placement. RIM won the bid to have their device
    featured. It is that way with all shows and movies.
    Simple as that. Just simple advertising.

    Anyone thinking this is because of some groundswell of BB
    appreciation is naive at best and deluded at worst.

    I'll leave it to you all to decide which camp you fall in.

    The 'berry' is poppin up everywhere! and as AG mentioned about RIM having their product pushed out there-how else to attract more people to 'have to get one of those' reactions! Cleaver marketing!

    The "It Phone" to get in Hannah Montana one episode was an 8330. Miley went crazy over it (in the show) and did a bunch of stuff to get one.

    Saw an episode of House where a businesswoman had to be told to put hers away, she was typing like crazy, multitasking like mad.

    I was in Conyers, Ga. last week, I was surfing the CB, looked to my left, then right, and all three of us were clicking away on our Curves.
