Google Chairman Eric Schmidt once again photographed using a BlackBerry
Just because Eric Schmidt is no longer Google's CEO doesn't mean it is good publicity for him to parade around with a BlackBerry device. After all, Schmidt remains Chairman of the Mountain View based company that developed the Android open source OS.

Schmidt was in Indonesia attending an economic summit when the picture was snapped of him using a BlackBerry Bold 9780 to take a picture. Sure, BlackBerry handsets are supposed to be the smartphone that serious businessmen pick. But when the business in question includes providing the Android OS and a ton of applications for Android phones, it makes you wonder.

This isn't the first time that the executive was caught sporting a 'Berry. About 2 years ago Schmidt was found snapping a photo with his BlackBerry Curve 8900. We are wondering if perhaps the Chairman of Google is tired of having to keep his Android phone plugged in all day.
