RIP BlackBerry 7130e

7130┬áMy trusty and durable BlackBerry 7130e is finally dead after a Vernors bath thanks to my son. The phone has been at my side for nearly three years and has proved to be a damn good phone. Sure, it doesn’t have a camera or expandable memory, but I gave it hell and it kept on kick’n. It survived falling of my roof a few times, my kid kicked it around like a toy, and it was even ran over by the car more than once. It was more durable than classic Nextals and that’s why I haven’t replaced it yet. Rest in peace, buddy.

Suggestions for an equally durable replacement are appreciated in the comments below.
