    8:41 p.m. | Updated Adding comment from spokesman of Ms. Keys.

    BlackBerry has named the singer Alicia Keys as its global creative director. At a press conference in New York on Wednesday, Ms. Keys said that she and BlackBerry were now “exclusively dating,” even though previously she had dumped the BlackBerry because she had been attracted to “hotter, sexier phones, something with more bling.”

    There’s just one glitch: Her Twitter account shows she was very recently spending time with an iPhone.

    The @AliciaKeys account shows posts that were published from an iPhone as recently as three days ago. (Information about how a tweet was posted does not appear on Twitter’s site but does show up in some apps for using Twitter.) There are also photos that were taken with Instagram, an app that is not available for BlackBerry.

    Of course, the new BlackBerry phones are not officially available in stores yet. Perhaps Ms. Keys’s relationship with her new phone blossomed only very recently.

    Rhett Usry, a spokesman for Ms. Keys, said in an e-mail: “The Internet is buzzing with speculation as to the exact time Alicia Keys ‘broke up’ with her previous smart phone. After a transitional period, she’s officially an exclusive BlackBerry 10 user today.”
