Seriously, WHY?

Here's a shot of the guy next to me yesterday on my flight. I've been seeing this for years. Folks with a Blackberry AND a normal mobile phone. They look up numbers on their Blackberry and then enter in the numbers on their other phone and make the call. Back and forth, etc. etc.

Seriously, what's the deal here?? And I'm not talking an oddity - I'm talking every week I'm flying and see multiple people on the plane with me doing this. There was a woman across the isle from me doing the same thing. If this isn't a statement to how crappy the Blackberry is as a phone, I don't know what is.

I can't imagine making my staff work this way. Whomever is in charge of their IT group is a total moron. And the scary thing is that there's gotta be a lot of those morons out there considering the number of folks I see with this setup.

On the plus side, they are really good at thumbing two handed phone manipulation. ;-)

Why not use a bluetooth headset?

I don't think the crackberry has bluetooth.

Everyone I ask says it sucks as a phone, thus they have a phone as well. What a joke.
