Shahrukh Khan, a die-hard gadget lover uses Blackberry for gaming, social networking and keeping in touch with friends and managers. However, we have also seen tweets from iPad from the superstar. Senior Bachchan, has a huge fan following of over 44 lacs users on Twitter and he uses both Blackberry and Apple products to keep them updated. Amir Khan goes different on this occasion too. He’s amongst the very few celebrities who uses a phone running on Android and not an iPhone or Blackberry. Salman Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Arjun Rampal, Sanjay Dutt are amongst those actors who use a Blackberry whereas Uday Chopra, Nagarjuna are the ones using an iPhone.
Amongst the actresses, Madhuri Dixit is said to be an Apple fan girl and it is presumed that she has an iPhone, iPad and Mac. One interesting catch is Priyanka Chopra; she is the brand ambassador for Nokia but has been using Instagram a lot often so we are presuming that she has an Apple device in stock. Bipasha Basu, Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty, Lara Dutta, Ayesha Takia, Genelia D’ Souza use Blackberry whereas Gul Panag uses Nokia.
The God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar has been using Blackberry and apps such as Ubersocial and all his colleagues have been following him. The list of Blackberry owner includes Virender Sehwag, MS Dhoni, RP Singh and Murali Karthik.
As expected, the business tycoons – Vijay Mallya and Anand Mahindra also use a Blackberry handset. Vijay Mallya has a handsome number of followers - 16 lacs. The writer Chetan Bhagat and Burkha Dutt also uses Blackberry.
No doubt, Blackberry is the most popular amongst the celebrities. But the question is, why so? We guess, it’s just because of the keypad. They are still not able to adjust to the touchscreen keypads used in the Android phones. However, Nokia E7 has one of the phones with the best keypad available in the market.
Do let us know your views on the same and also if you know any other celeb using Android, iPhone or anything non-blackberry.
