JUST WHEN BLACKBERRY THOUGHT IT WAS MAKING A COMEBACK - BB IS DEAD

Whether you are a rap fan or not, you'll appreciate the significance of a song devoted entirely to criticizing a product, and 'bigging up' another one. A sign of things to come? UK rapper, GT Solo jumps into the debate around Blackberry vs iPhone.

We've all been there. You have an iPhone somebody else has a Blackberry. The debate is pretty emotive. Phones are now part of our identities, and the younger you are the stronger a role your phone plays.

It's an interesting time for Blackberry with its new tablet, and the growth of Blackberry Messenger. The FT recently talked of Messenger as BB's secret weapon, and a key part of its fight back, but GT Solo just doesn't agree.

It's interesting how much of an impact songs like this actually have on sales due to the cultural reference.

Remember this?

Never the less, will be interesting to see what BB do in a world that is increasingly full of apple fanboys (and girls).
