Will.i.am uses his BlackBerry Torch to tweet while holding the Olympic torch in his other hand
There’s just something about celebrities and smartphones that make us all pique with interest, as some really profess their love for their handheld companion. No stranger in that in any way, Black Eye Peas member Will.i.am has shown us in the past his love for BlackBerry, and yet again, he’s showing us why.

This time around, Will.i.am was spotted over the big pond in the English town of Taunton, where he was chosen to be one of the thousands of lucky people to carry the Olympic Torch. Naturally, it’s regarded as an important process carrying the torch and its eternal flame, but if you watch closely enough, we spot him yet again using his tried and true BlackBerry Torch to tweet something.  In fact, he said the following about the experience:



So there you have it folks, just when most of us thought that the BlackBerry love is dwindling, here’s Will.i.am showing his love for his device.

i really wish he would have busted a$$ while on his phone. honestly he couldn't wait til after to tweet or txt or whatever the hell he was doing? he also sounds like an idiot referring to himself in the 3rd person and being such a sell out. he's like a walking commercial for whatever brand is paying him off.

I'm not an honorable person but to me, that dishonors the honor of carrying the torch. He could have did that before or after.

Probably more insulting that they let a member of the Black Eyed Peas even touch the Olympic Torch at all. But I don't know...I just don't care what kind of phones celebrities use. They aren't exactly experts in the tech industry. In fact, I'm not surprised if he's using a Blackberry Torch...must not be eligible for an upgrade...

Or most likely, as with everything they do he must be getting paid a hefty "endorsement" to show himself off in public with it.
