Which Phones Do Celebs Choose And Why?

This week we will be starting a new topic every Friday we are going to have a posting related to cell phones and their everyday use.  At Puremobile.com we feel that we bombard you with so many cell phone reviews that maybe our customers would like to read something more interesting.

This week being the introductory entry we thought we'd write about celebrities and their cell phones.  In the past the celebs tended to gravitate toward phones that were both functional and made a statement.  At one point many celebrities were using the Sidekick by T-Mobile.  This was a favorite for quiet sometime and actually was a phone that gave many people the option of a full keyboard.  Many of these phones have gone to the wayside but you can still see their influences in phones like the i-Mate Ultimate 9502.  These days many celebs can be seen using more than one phone, but among all the choices there are two favorites and they seem to be the iPhone and Blackberry Curve.

Among the celebrities Miley Cyrus uses the iPhone, which seems to be more popular among the younger celebrities.  Being the kind of phone it is likely drives the younger generation towards the style and more importantly younger people tend be adopt new technology faster.

Paris Hilton in the past has been seen using the sidekick and even had the phone hacked at one point where all the internet had private phone numbers of various celebrities.  These days she's been seen using the Blackberry Curve with it's full QWERTY keyboard.  Other celebs that use the curve are Lindsay Lohan and Katherine McPhee among a whole slew of others.  Even Barack Obama uses a Blackberry but may have to give it up on January 20th when he takes office.

Eva Longoria uses the BlackJack II from Samsung.  It's similar to the curve but slightly larger.  Other notable names that use the BlackJack II are Jon Voight and Kevin Connolly.

Now the real question is what motivates the phone choices.  We guess it's something that no one other then the real inner circle of each celeb can answer.  Among the reasons are sponsorship/endorsments, usefulness and simply a need to fit in.  The last one being something that both celebrities and us everyday people share.  One celebrity might by a specific phone because all her friends have it then in turn we will get that phone because so and so has it.

In the end why they do what they do no one can really know, but we do all find it fun to delve into someone elses life for a little to see what others are doing.  There is a world of information out their about which cell phones people use and we suggest going out and seeing others use and think.  It gives you an idea of what can be good.  If nothing else you can learn a little something about that celebrity you love to watch.
