shocked Please what is dis craze about black berry these days. Erbody wants to own one even people that don't use up to 1/4 of the features it has. A friend said that the people dat use it feel dat it makes them look "smart" and I think he is right. Please what do you guys think?

I have to say that my BB Bold is an indispensable piece for me. I get my GPS,pages, work email, all three private emails, (including the one that alerts me to posts on here grin) current stock updates,my Yahoo and MSN messengers, BB messenger, dictionary, weather and a host of other apps; as well as quick internet access, but I try to limit the internet data usage to no more than 150-200MB a month as it adds up. I always thought that my friends at home in Naija would not need so much, like the weather which I can't do without here, but it seems that they do. Most of their emails are from the BB for e.g.

Speaking of emails; I'll share part of a funny one I just got.
My Caucasian friend is at home in Nigeria to let the inlaws meet their two and half year old twin boys. She emailed to tell me that they are so excited about everything, but that the best is buying stuff in traffic. The boys she says have been shouting GALA!! GALA!! and DODO! DODO!!, copied from the boys selling in traffic. Too funny! I've been rereading the emails and laughing. I can imagine two half caste kids with Oyinbo accents shouting GALA and DODO.

Nigerians would never admit to being suckers for fads and would go to any length to defend their vanity with ridiculous reasons. BB is a fad and like others before it will pass.

Those that love fads will love it and those sad and angry anti-establishment people will hate it. However, after its passing, those that have need for it will continue using it. Kind of like those who really like Makossa or like Padded V-Boot.

true!!
i use it but i dont see the reason behind the new 'craze' for it tho

its just like the way 9jas now go mad to wear football jersieys. I dont even feel good wearing jersieys anymore nor brandish the BB anyhow cos of the way every tom d'ick and harry take it

Re: The Black Berry Craze by deor03(m): 2:14pm On Mar 08, 2010
Get used to it .

Nigerian have the pure water mentality.  It is a kill for any company, since all Nigerians LOVE  one thing at the same time.

Have you noticed !!!.  The (Nospectos, wealth solutions etc,) craze  ; the share/ trading  craze ; the Premiship Craze ( gunners for life, chealse etc )

2010 is  BB year,

Don't worry there will be something else soon

Re: The Black Berry Craze by cicero(m): 2:22pm On Mar 08, 2010
I have a blackberry storm and although I am not able to use all the features, I don't recommend it if your line is hot like mine. I have to charge it all night, every night and that lasts me only a day.
I also tried to configure with my yahoo email, but it won't let me.

It is cool though that I can access my business mails on the go.
