Celebs usually like their BlackBerry smartphones. Some have ventured to an iPhone or Android, but most who have had a BlackBerry stick with BlackBerry.

Russel Simmons, the founder of Def Jam Records, tweeted that he met up with “senior blackberry guys”. That senior guy in the photo is RIM’s US Managing Director, Richard Piasentin.

In what was quite possibly one of the best interviews, we had the honor of discussing with Richard why the all-touch BlackBerry 10 device would release first and how they’re bringing the revolution. Check out that interview here.

It’s great to see such a prominent celeb like Russel Simmons tweet “They are back!” to his 2.3 million followers, in reference to BlackBerry. What other celebs do you think will begin voicing their support for BB10?
