Doing My Part to Bring a New NHL Franchise to Canada

06/24/2008 at 5:47pm EDT

This post has nothing to do with hockey, except for the fact that Kukla is about to put a few bucks in Jim Balsillie’s pocket.

The thing is, I’m this close to getting a ‘Blackberry’—a nice little bonus from Paul. (Cool, right? Though I suspect it’s a sign he thinks I don’t work hard enough!)

Anyway, I could use some advice from Crackberry addicts…

I realize this probably isn’t a big deal to most, but I’m pretty cheap when it comes to cell phones. I still use an old Samsung I bought used on eBay two or three years ago. (Frankly, I still find it exciting that phones have cameras). So I’m pretty thrilled about the upgrade.

Besides, responding to email while driving, surfing the net, reading The Hockey News and listening to the White Stripes—all at once—just sounds like a great time to me.

imageSo I’m down to two choices: Blackberry Curve (available) and Blackberry Bold (coming soon).

Both are insanely over-priced so that’s not a deciding issue. I just want to know, which one would YOU get? And do you have any warnings about Blackberries or the necessary phone service, etc?

This is all new territory for me so any advice is appreciated.

And bear in mind that I’m liable to be using this thing for the next 10 years, till even duct tape and crazy glue refuse to hold it together, so it needs to last.


P.S. Strangely, the links to all the Canucks ringtones are currently dead. But that page reminds me: I want Tommy’s “Bingo Bango Bongo Luongo” for the new phone. How obnoxious would that thing be, going off every other minute?

Awesome, I say.
