You’ll no doubt be rushing out to emulate your heroes when we tell you that The Darkness have chosen to take BlackBerry 7230s from O2 on tour with them. According to O2’s press release on the matter, the handhelds are perfect for helping the band keep in touch with their friends and family as well as their management.
All this seems a bit too rock-lite for us. We love the BlackBerry as much as the next hirsute metal fan, but that doesn’t mean we want to see bands waving them about the place. You wouldn’t catch Led Zeppelin packing Nokia 7650s along with the Red Snappers, would you now.
