Kim Kardashian hoards this one near-extinct tech piece
Kim Kardashian has revealed that she's worried about the iPhone takeover, so much so that she has placed the Blackberry on the endangered list and she's doing everything she can to make sure that they don't become extinct.
The reality TV star revealed during a chat with Re/code founder Kara Swisher during their mobile conference on Monday that she is still addicted to the old-school Blackberry and that she much prefers them to iPhone models.
"People are horrified that I have a BlackBerry," she explained. "And I don't understand that reaction. A BlackBerry is my heart and soul. I love it. I'll never get rid of it."
So, what is so appealing about a Blackberry? Kardashian revealed that it's much easier and faster to type messages and emails and that she likes having a keyboard. In fact, her love for the phone is so strong that she's hoarding a small stockpile and actually trolls eBay for new ones.
"They don’t even have them in stores anymore. I buy them on eBay. It's a BlackBerry Bold. And I like to have three in my room that I line up in case they break," she explained.
"I'm afraid it will go extinct. I'm on a mission to make that not happen."
The star even joked about buying the company, if she could. But that's not to say she doesn't own an iPhone; she does, although that's mostly to take pictures... mainly selfies.
"I do have an iPhone, and I use it for photos," she explained. We've seen the results of that on Instagram.
