By now you might have heard about the New York Times article claiming BlackBerry is the black sheep of the smartphone marketplace. Our own, Stephen DeRusett told why he’s proud to be a BlackBerry user.

In the article from NYT, one of the interviewees said, “she had stopped pulling out her BlackBerry at cocktail parties and conferences. In meetings, she says she hides her BlackBerry beneath her iPad for fear clients will see it and judge her.”

Have you ever felt this way too? Have you ever hid your BlackBerry from others in fear they’d think you were any less of a person? Vote in the poll and sound off in the comments.

P.S. The song for today HAS to be “The Choice Is Yours” by Black Sheep, listen to it on YouTube here.
