If you noticed, yesterday, my posting was kind of lite especially amid the release of the BlackBerry 8700c. That was because I spent most of my day traveling from one side of the country to the other side. One of the things I noticed as I was getting onto an airplane walking through first class on my way back to my cramped seat in coach was that everyone in the first class cabin had a BlackBerry.

To be completely honest there were like 2 kids up there who didn’t have them, but all 9 adults had a BlackBerry. This is probably not uncommon and happens more than you would think because having a BlackBerry for a business traveller today is like having a laptop 5 years ago. Most everyone does. It was just kind of strange to get onto an airplane first thing in the morning and the first 9 people that you walk passed are all positioned in the BlackBerry prayer.
