Celebrities get a BlackBerry upgrade

Celebrities are upgrading to the BlackBerry 8800.

Blackberry 8800: Hollywood's latest darling. crackberry.com

We all know that a BlackBerry can soothe our young celebrities in their time of need. We previously reported that Britney Spears had her trusty BlackBerry 8700 at her side during her various stints in rehab and K-Fed drama. Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were also known to tote that version of the smart phone.

But Hollywood is a fickle beast that is concerned with the latest and greatest, and the folks over at CrackBerry are reporting that the BlackBerry 8800 is the latest in-style communication accessory.

I guess it's just a matter of time before we start seeing the BlackBerry 8300 in those paparazzi shots.
