    I actually find this cool that Google CEO still owns blackberry phone

    "CP: Whats your current smartphone?

    Schmidt: Motorola Razr X. As you know, Motorola is in the process of being sold to Lenovo but this is in fact the phone that I use.

    CP: You were a noted BlackBerry user, what made you switch?

    Schmidt: Well, I need to carry this. I still like BlackBerrys but Im afraid they missed a set of transitions that were very important and the new CEO is trying very hard to recover. But the fact of the matter is that Android and iPhone are driving the market now.

    CP: Do you miss the keyboard?

    Schmidt: I have always liked the BlackBerry keyboard.

    CP: Did you ever go the Google engineering team and say, Listen, I love the BlackBerry, theres a lot of powerful people out there that like the BlackBerry, why dont we make a product thats like the BlackBerry but made by Google and better?

    Schmidt: Google, remember, largely makes the software and its up to the hardware industry (to make a BlackBerry competitor). BlackBerry has made its keyboard intellectual property and you cant just copy it.

    Later, at his speaking event with the Empire Club of Canada, he admitted he still does carry a BlackBerry in addition to his Motorola phone."

    We got a whole recent thread dedicated to Eric Schmidt ahd his love for BB here including this interview. For some reason he states he has a Razr X when there is no such thing just Moto X. http://forums.crackberry.com/general...68/index3.html

    If I were a shareholder, I'd send him a box of 9900s.
